Red Fence, Lonely Hearts and Corona Virus 19

30″ by 24″ Acrylic on Canvas, unframed, 750$

Pandemic times. This one has been through big changes. Now, finally, it has arrived. It represents loss. Quarantine, even in my home with substantial access to nature and a studio was difficult. I could imagine what it might have done to those locked down in smaller spaces. I did things in lockdown that were unusual for me…like devouring anything binge worthy on Netflix or Prime, creating new variations of banana bread, creating days that were framed by watching daily announcements by local and national politicians, and so much waiting; hunkering down and waiting for terrible news, or really, any news. I have a whole series of odd drawings and paint sketches of imaginary dead people, because…poor Italy and China!

We hunkered down at home like good Canadians. And then, about four weeks in, I couldn’t any more. I was too antsy so we went for a drive. The roads were still and quiet and gray and vacant. The air seemed still and quiet and gray and vacant. The local town was still and quiet and gray and vacant. Nothing was open. Deer, but no people. We drove home feeling sheepish, a little sad but mission completed.

So much loss. Loss of community. Loss of family. Loss of coffees in cafes and listening to live laughter and other human goings on. Loss of travel and adventure. Loss of hugs and kisses. Loss of excitement. For many, loss of income. Loss of purpose. Loss of vitality. Just more red fences and unhooked lines.

Our souls will need repair; maybe a few new tricks, a few new habits, a fresh way forward. Rot causes havoc if it’s not taken care of.

This Covid 19 piece is the saddest piece I’ve ever created. I can’t wait for human resiliency to bring down those red fences.

Vancouver Island is well suited for rain, but the storm on Jan. 31 was INTENSE! I am grateful that my home is on high ground, and that it’s roof and walls kept us dry and warm. This painting is a direct result of the storm experience.
