Wife and Daughter are having a "mother-daughter" day out in London which involves lunch at Harvey Nichols and shopping at Westfield.
I, by contrast, took in some culture, visiting the Royal Academy's Abstract Impressionism show.
There were a number of highlights I thought. Ad Reinhardt's totally black Abstract Painting of 1956, for instance, and the half-dozen Rothko's.
But two stood out above all other - Jackson Pollock's Blue Posts
and Joan Mitchell's Salut Tom
The show was pretty full when I attended, but I was able to spend over two hours there - needless to say, I have acquired the show's accompanying book.
