    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

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.

The back of Stirrup Cay
