My Corona Covid19 Experience

 Working in my studio , March April May, as the world spun into pandemic fear and suffering I decided to try and paint what might express my wonder and despair.....Here is the first "abstract" (ie I was not looking at anything) I have worked on  in many years....Really a virus is simply another part of the natural world...right? ...And how it affected me? Guess it felt like my idea of Hell (fear) and darkness....I just started putting paint scraped from my pallet with a knife onto  36x48 "300 lb Arche watercolor paper and this is what came out...The days seemed to just keep rolling along in quarantine unreality...I  kept painting....Still am, just for today
