I did a lot of chatting this morning. The telephone is a lifeline for so many people at the moment. Quite different from sitting on the edge of the landscape next to your friend, like in today's painting. It's hard to imagine going out and sitting down as we've got so used to being on the move when we go for a walk. And it's become very normal to stand a good two metres from people if you do have the rare chance of a quick chat.
Today I read that outside the Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan, there's a pop up tomato farm where a white structure is being used to grow tomatoes. The cherry tomato plants are are in oblong boxes about 15ft high and there are windows to allow the New Yorkers to see in. Then underneath the tables there are some yellow cardboard boxes and these are beehives that house about 150 bumble bees. These bumble bees then pollinate the tomato plant flowers and the icing on the cake is the tomatoes are to be donated to charity to feed the homeless. What a fantastic story about inventiveness and a different kind of art.
