Guitar Player in the Park

Seemingly endless cloudy and rainy days gave way today to a spectacular afternoon.  In Dupont Circle Park in Washington, D.C.,  a man strummed songs on his guitar in a soothing way. The soft chords he played seemed to erase the sound of the traffic surrounding us.   Each melody was a well-known one to anyone around and listening to music in the 80’s.  The songs blended with the sound of the water falling from the fountain nearby. A perfect afternoon and venue for a quick sketch!  Hopefully the guitar player will return soon for an encore!  (And, hopefully, so will the sun!)
