I was catching up with Christine over ZOOM because we haven’t seen each other since the Corona Virus started hitting New York City very hard and was eating a lot of clementines.
I started making a little square mound of it while we were talking (I always find I need to do something with my hands to stay focused :D)
When my sister came over to the table see what I’m up to, she laughed at the little mess I made and joked about it being art.
I laughed too, and then thought, “why not?”
And so I whipped up this draft for the day
My cute orange peels :). Thanks for feeding me today.

At one point did it enter our heads that we can no longer play with arts and crafts… create.. that art making is an activity best left for kids? Getting back our creativity as adults… waking up dry bones…. a hope I have for the city of New York.

Woman’s face coloring reminds me of style of Lucian Freud
“I found my drive to diversify permanent collections. They are the beating heart of the art world. If you can change the collection, you can change the public story of art.” – Helen Molesworth
