I painted a four-season series of Winthrop Park in the late nineties. Here is a new version of the series. Changes in the park since then: whole new Coffee & Tea house moved in (upper-right) and the old Pi Eta club, now a couple of restaurants, got a facelift with the white facade (upper-middle). New benches, umbrellas, and gas lights too. Winthrop Park, Harvard Square Seasons, oil on canvas 16x20" $450. each
