While the drawbacks to our new reality are readily apparent, I welcome the less obvious benefits this imposed shelter in place state brings: here’s a gift of uninterrupted time in my studio, an unexpected chance to focus on my work, freed of other obligations and distractions. I have so many paintings that have been waiting for me and instead of travel, teaching, and all the many things that usually get in the way there’s just hours of studio time ahead for the foreseeable future. To me it seems that creative people have been given a huge gift at a time when the world most need to see and hear from us.
