Covid-19, 2020

My eyes have never seen a stranger time than this.  The spreading of a virus around the world, resulting in death, illness, fear, quarantine for some, and isolation for those at risk.  My art journal has always been my favorite way of expressing my feelings.  I found this beautiful image in the magazine #Daphnesdiary and was inspired to do the following:  I used texture modeling paste, watercolor, and clear gesso on the background. In the end, it doesn’t show very much.  The image was too large, which resulted in me cutting off her boots.  It seemed fitting to our current times to place them by the door.  John Prine died yesterday due to complications of Covid-19, as have thousands of others.  The line down her face appears like tears, representing these times of sadness.
