Anemones on Governors Island

The new Hills on Governors Island are nice and green now and there are wildflower beds here and there. It is so quiet peacful on a weekdays and feels far from the city. We rented a surrey to peddal around the 172-acre island.

Today I had fun working on the flowers I photographed there in Corel Painter 2018.

      Thanks. Interesting to see what folks like. That is the one I like least. I think it is because of the dark vignette which has become a bit of a cliché. We all see things differently.

        That’s so true – I have a thing about bees so that’s probably why i love it so much!

    It looks like a spectacular place, to visit. Must be nearby you have a few separate articles, on this area. The Anemones are wonderful, quite different from the ones here. Thanks for sharing. I love the luminescence of the top two indeed.

      Governors Island is right off the southern tip of Manhattan. Glad you like my work.
