It’s been an challenging year in many ways, but on a personal level our family has been doing ok given the circumstances, for which I’m thankful. We’re healthy and not too sick of each other. You’d think a year of enforced staying at home would increase the amount of art-making time, but it hasn’t really turned out that way. Too many other challenges and no art fairs to cause mass panic art-production. The last few months I have been able to get back to encaustics a bit, and have started a ‘100 days of art’ challenge, which is nudging me back into painting and sketching. I’m trying to branch out and do some ‘themes’ (I know, crazy, right?) instead of flitting so much about. Some days I stick to it and some days not. Two themes I’ve got going are “Birds” and “Bird’s Eye Views” at the moment, so thought I’d post a few pics.
