2020 Covid Views
Twice my family was infected with the corona virus, first in April 2020 and again at Christmas 2020. We distanced, wore masks, ordered online, learned how to zoom visit and did not hug. The virus still found its way into our home, it was scary, but I count myself lucky. This was 2020 and I painted a pandemic view. The dates are significant and the isolated beauty I found will probably not be seen again in tourist destinations. While people cancelled plans, I found I could bicycle through a deserted Provincelands, Cape Cod. I was amazed and grateful to be there and it was beautiful. Restricted gathering and drive through food meant patios remained empty yet the huge, bright umbrellas were open as if everything was normal and inviting. Timed entrances thinned crowds and left streets empty, and surfaces and architecture were appreciated. I was lucky. My oils and watercolors are from coastal towns of Maine and Cape Cod during a world pandemic. I snuck two Saratoga County images in as well. Our north eastern corner has been a safer haven to wait out this 100-year crisis.
