    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

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:
