We’re weary of all things Covid.  It has hit some of us extraordinarily hard, others less so, but we have all been impacted by it in ways that may take a generation to fully comprehend.  

For me, painting and my connection to other artists has been especially vital to my well-being during this time.  The virtual world of online conversations, studio visits, gallery tours, and panel discussions among artists, curators, gallerists, scholars, and community builders has been a lifeline. 

I am grateful also for the global community of artists that I feel a real connection with on Instagram.  It is a generous and supportive community where we share our work with all its struggles and triumphs.  I cannot wait until we can all be together again, rubbing elbows at crowded gallery openings, getting our faces up close to artworks and being thrilled by them.
