Notes from quarantine
These days it seems to take very shiny objects to hold my attention. During this terrible pandemic we find ourselves fighting off anxiety while trying to make productive use of the time inside. I have to limit the amount of news I watch and audio books are my favorite escape as I dither around way too much. Focus has been somewhat elusive. Friends say how great it is to be creative at this time holed up inside, but I'm finding it difficult to follow through. Starting now, however, I vow to do better and work towards building up inventory for that day when life returns to normal (whatever new normal is) and hopefully art shows with it. If we can muster some concentration, its a good time to try new techniques. Ever hopeful, I'm keeping my show schedule up on the events section of this website. But every week I'm changing the entries as spring and early summer shows continue to cancel. Producers of fall shows have slowed down jurying and sending out results, somewhat wisely. We are all figuring this out as we go. We are staying in and following all the rules. We are wearing masks and gloves to go grocery shopping, buying what we need and not hoarding. I hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy and holding fast. This too shall pass and I can't wait to see all your smiling faces soon.
