So, I'm now an Artist in Residence, as I am sheltering in place, during the Corona Virus Pandemic. Actually, its not much different than my usual retired lifestyle, except for not being able to do things at our community pool and clubhouse, which are now closed. So, instead of doing water aerobics with my friends, I do yoga in my living room. Instead of entering the local Plein Air Painters' latest show and going to paint-outs, I am forced to work at home, in my studio or at my dining room table. I have to admit that the fear is sometimes overwhelming, but I am grateful everyday for my art activities that take me out of my everyday head and into the art zone. What a blessing!
So, here's a new digital painting, I did in Procreate BEFORE this madness started. I used a photo I had taken last year of my grandson, Alex, trying on steampunk face masks, in Tombstone, as the inspiration. He did purchase the face mask. The background figure is me in his Plague doctor mask. I thought it pretty fitting for our current situation.
