Prospect Park Drum Circle


On Sunday morning I decided to drag myself out of Futon and into the park. It had been a few weeks since I headed out with nothing but a sketchbook in hand and a positive attitude. After a couple of years running past the African drum circle in Prospect Park, I had finally arrived there to sketch. I filled my belly with a fish sandwich and sat down in a prime spot facing the circle. The beats of the drums kept me going, I must have drawn for at least 2 hours non stop. These are a few sketches, and with a free drumming track off of the net, it's as if you were there, well, without the fish sandwich, but I just saved you 5 dollars.

I've only run by as well...I'll have to stop and check it out one of these days. One should always make time to stop and listen to the drums.
