A memorable moment of beautiful sportsmanship when Naomi Osaka supported Coco Gauff after her loss in their Third Round match in this year’s US Open Tennis Championship. In our time of universal uncertainty this was truly an uplifting moment and shows the best of what we can all aspire to. Thank you Naomi.

My painting of the late, great Canadian actor
was painted this summer with much love as a gift for all at Bard in honour of the 30th Anniversary Season and to say thank you for thirty glorious years of theatre at its very best.

The first American woman to win six titles, and celebrated last year in my post
the power of teal.

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”
Neil Armstrong, July 20th, 1969
Remembering my late father on Father’s Day with this lovely painting of his. I remember the day he proudly brought it home from his evening art class. Thanks Dad, and Happy Father’s Day to all the lucky dads and grandads out there of which I’m perhaps the luckiest ❤️

The Eternal Flame in the Hall of Remembrance at Yad Vashem
, Jerusalem, which I drew on July 11th 1967, for this Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2019.
“The Eternal Flame, burning from a base fashioned like a broken bronze goblet, continuously illuminates the Hall, its smoke exiting the building through an opening at the highest point of the ceiling. Before it stands a stone crypt containing the ashes of Holocaust victims, brought to Israel from the extermination camps.”
