    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

Two new watercolor sketches

The pastoral figures in the sketch below are my third favourite piece of sculpture in the Park–after the Romeo and Juliette at the Delacourt Theater and the three carefree young ladies sporting in the fountain in the Conservatory Gardens. All the Paul Manship pieces are in a bunch after these.

I have placed them in an imaginary setting vastly different to the reality photo included in my last post. (See: Conservatoy Gardens and a Cautionary Note’)

Pastoral Scene

The following sketch was inspired by the masses of broken shells on the beach at Atlantic City. You can search for hours for a complete one:
