May Day, Central Park

Children come dressed in their finest to celebrate May Day in New York City's Central Park. Dancing in circles, they wind their colorful ribbons around the May pole, soaking in the sun. With the artist's velvet touch of watercolor, one can almost feel the soft breeze and warmth of spring.
