    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.

Latest Sketches

Here is a miscellaneous crop of subjects I have sketched over the last two or three months. The locations are varied and in no particular order:

Belvedere Castle in Central Park

Nassau Harbour

Out with the old, in with the new. Two original houses left in the rubble of the newest Casino nearing completion in Atlantic City

Still Life with artificial flowers and crossword puzzle

This sketch and the one following are two treatments of the same theme--The lonliness of old age. To be avoided at all costs

The private Island in the Bahamas owned by NCL is being turned into a bustling resort. Many shade trees have gone and fees are now being charged for umbrellas and water activities. The following sketch is my version of what it used to look like at the back of the island and the photograph following it shows the, still developing, front.
