    September 7 to 15 Tony and Jo will visit us from the UK

    13-23 January, 2018 Cruise out of New York around the Caribbean on the Norwegian Gem

    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.

  1. Ben, beautiful still life. Quite lovely! I expect you are packing your paints for the cruise. I look forward to seeing you and Ethel very soon.



    • Thanks, Sandy. My travel set is at the ready! We can’t wait until we see you again in the old familiar QM2 places. Ben and Ethel

  2. Thanks for sharing this beautiful painting Ben. Love to you and Ethel.

    • Valerie. So glad you like it. I thought the sketch had turned out better than my usual stuff, especially the rendering of the marble pieces. So, particularly happy to have your approval. Love, Ben and Ethel

  3. This is exquisite, Ben! Sending you and Ethel much love this Thanksgiving Day.

  4. Dear Ben
    Lovely to see and talk to you on Skype the other day. You do look good. We are also impressed with your painting. As promised I will send you samples of Don’s efforts. For now we wish you and Ethel a wonderful trip, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
    Here’s to Berlin next year!!!
    Lots of love to you both from
    Don & Inge

    • Inge. Can’t wait to see what Don is doing these days. Or, to see you both in Berlin next year. All the very best for 2012. Love, Ben and Ethel
