    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.

New artwork for Kim

Daughter Kim and I keep close via Skype several days each week.  She sees what is in range of the camcorder behind me and has remarked upon the bowl of artificial flowers in the living room of my apartment.  The flower arrangement was made by my late wife , Dorothy, some twenty-five years ago but I still find it an attractive painting subject, and, although it is now beginning to resent any movement, I am reluctant to change it.

I have painted it several times as you will know. This treatment with the amusing egg-cup is especially for Kim. I  will pass it to her when I visit London in the Spring.

  1. What a lovely painting. I love it!

  2. Beautiful painting, Ben. The egg-cup is a great touch. As the very fortunate recipient of a similar painting, I happen to love the subject!

  3. Don’t forget Ben and Ethel that you are most welcome to stay chez nous at Theydon Bois when you come over. Hope you can manage some time with us. P&I

    • Pam and Ian. Thank you for your most gracious offer. We will certainly want to take in the delights of Theydon Bois when we visit the UK. Love, Ben and Ethel
