People are complaining about the Corona Virus, having to stay in and not go to their bars and casinos.
I don't get it. Maybe it's because this quarantine thing is not such a big change in my life.
Artists are happier being alone.
My mind is excited to wake up and realize that I have absolutely nothing pressing to do all day. I read, I paint, I nap.
Yes I realize that other people need to get out and earn a living, and I feel for them. But bars and casinos and tattoo parlors?
I sneaked away to "Holy Lobby" the other day during early "at risk" hours to buy a few things. I got a canvas for the OVAC 12 x 12 fundraiser, and came across these 6 x 6" gallery wrapped canvases.
They looked a little crafty to me, but they were half priced, and I thought it might make me think a little.
I can paint them and throw them in a shoe box if i need to store them. "Whaddaya got to lose?" whispered my impulsive self.
Anyway....here are a few of them, with a couple more toned and ready to go. Just a little fun.
