    June 13 Picnicked on The Great lawn in central Park to the music of The New York Philharmonic led by James Gaffigan. Great program with spectacular fireworks after the concert. The concert included two pieces composed by students from its education program — remarkable works (Bernstein style) from composers  11 and 12 years old respectively! They took their bows from the stage!

Artwork – Oak flooring

I was sitting comfortably under my favourite oak tree in the park on a sweltering day last week. My paints were at the ready but I was begining to doze off. Squirrels were busy chewing the ripening acorns way above me and debris was wafting down all around. Mid-doze, I was struck very smartly on the head by a dead branchlet, 10 inches long and about 2 inches round! A moment’s panic over, I looked at the ground around my chair to find the culprit and this a sketch of approximately what I saw:
