Our Grandson's Bar Mitzvah

Thirteen years ago my husband and I were racing across the Atlantic when our daughter was admitted to a London hospital 6 weeks before our grandson Callum was due.  She had excellent care and when he was born 6 days later he was small but healthy.   Now he is a smart, talented, handsome, and loveable guy - and his Bar Mitzvah was impressive.  We were able to take a few photos before the guests arrived - practicing his Torah reading and standing in the gorgeous synagogue.

Congratulations Callum.  We love you so much!

Before the guests arrived:  One photo to show the beautiful stained glass windows, and Callum, to remember the gorgeous setting for the event.

Several days before the Bar Mitzvah our NYC Urban Sketchers group met in this synagogue - one of many houses of worship we visit to sketch in December.  I sketched, but haven't painted those sketchbook pages yet.

Urban Sketching at Starbucks - NYC

Went for coffee after the Village Art Fair, and sat across from a cute young couple.  It was the beginning of the semester at NYU and they had lots to talk about.  I sketched them very quickly and painted them at home.

Urban Sketchers June 22, 2019

Drawing along Museum Mile:  The group met in front of the Guggenheim Museum, and Urban Sketchers spread out along 5th Avenue throughout the day.

Two sections of my Accordion Sketchbook:  This is my USK accordion book which I reserved for NYC paintings.  These are two sections done on June 22nd.

Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia

Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, PA

It was a gorgeous Spring Day in Philadelphia and I had just arrived for a reunion.  I took a long walk and revisited Rittenhouse Square.  There were people at every outdoor restaurant, sitting on every bench, and even over the grass.  I sat on the wall of a fountain with many others and sketched this little building in the middle of the park.

The B-Side at St. Ann's Warehouse - Dumbo

This week we saw The B-Side at St. Ann's Warehouse in Dumbo, Brooklyn.  Eric Berryman, actor, was inspired by a similar show of Shaker Spirituals, and the Director of that show for the Wooster Group directed this performance.  For one hour, Eric and two back-up singers, sang Negro Folklore Work Songs by Prisoners at the Texas State Penitentiary.  The record on which this was based was produced in 1964.  We really enjoyed it, and dinner at Cecconis was excellent.
