My Art Life In The Time Of A Pandemic

March 25, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

IF I was having my normal life as an artist. On this day, Wednesday 03/25/2020,  I'd be posting exciting new art happenings. I'd be sharing what's next and what to look forward to.

But then Corona-19 Virus found us. ALL OF US. 

March started to cancel itself, it then unraveled and basically disappeared.  "Wow. ALL of March is canceled." The last two weeks have been a blur of the same really...and now it looks as if April and May is pretty much cancelled too. 

To make sense of it, for me and my work, I thought I'd check into what just happened.

Of course I know of and follow and appreciate many more establishments. These mentioned are however dear or close to my heart. 

I don't have a place where I SELL my art. I HAVE TOO MUCH TO SELL. I am a prolific high volume maker.

My website is a portfolio and working space for me. MOST items that I sell are in the moment when I post something. either something current that I just made on Instagram/FB Or when I share retro work each Thursday on FB.

It happens just like that. someone will see something and message me. "I want that"

Find and follow me on Instagram  

On FB - I have a profile and an artist PAGE.
