Prospect Park Inlet

Prospect Park Inlet

Piece description from the artist

Plein Air painting in a nice nook in Prospect Park. It was far away from others and the smell of BBQ was in the air.

The impressionists were on my mind, and how the invention of lead tubes for paint allowed them to work directly in nature and attempt to document the experience.

I was focusing on a shoreline clogged thick with phragmites, an invasive plant. Invasive species are a problem in many areas, but what makes something invasive? Is it the plant's fault or is it the fault of our relationship to it? How can we encourage a better relationship to these plants? Phragmites have changed the shoreline of the water body in Prospect Park, regardless of the wishes of Olmsted and Vaux, the designers, or the current landscape managers.
