How to stay relevant and creative in Covid times. I am so thankful a friend nominated me to do a “7 day Art Challenge”. Of coarse to stop other work and think of doing a work of art or rendering each day was a challenge indeed. I went back to my commercial work mindset and tapped into the current creative techniques and colors.
Such an artistic dilemma. As a traditional artist, I live touching and dealing with the medium, smelling the paint and thinners, or handling the paper or canvas. Digital is so darn clean! I’m so used to leaving the studio space and needing to completely shower before seeing people.
It should be a fabulous medium to advance our culture and share it with each other. It is the newest platform to learn new techniques and share ideas. It has not exactly worked out that way. What is it? ...Technology.
The early months of 2020 have been quite a challenge. We are struggling with information and how to protect ourselves and our families. It has really created stress and lots of time to think and stop worrying. It does require discipline to keep on track artistically.
Revisiting a really fun piece to create. In the fall of 2018, I was prepping for an exhibition at the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis, MO. The exhibition was for Dia de Los Muertos, the “Day of The Dead”.
This 2019 Fall was a very busy, productive show season. I’ve met new friends, been reunited with old friends, offered new opportunities as well as inspired as I create new work. Thank you Long Island, for welcoming me home.
Being back in New York after 14 years is a challenge and a relief. Day to day interactions which might upset other people, causally pass by and really influence how I have survived living in very different places in the world.
