Issue 12 – November 1, 2020

Presented by

Welcome to our 12th issue of Moore Art Share – COVID Edition, a digital collection of creative works shared from the Moore County community documenting how we responded during the pandemic. Scroll down to see the new submissions. They are listed in no particular order. And, if you are so inspired, please submit your own art.

Special thanks goes to everyone who shared their COVID creations, the Arlington Public Library’s “Quaranzine” for the inspiration to do something like this, and to The Sway, The Pilot, and Sandhills Magazine for spreading the word. Stay safe, keep sharing your creations, and enjoy!

Global warming is on our minds. Wildlife doesn’t have a voice, but we do. Protecting animals and their habitats is up to us. These seals depend on clean water and beaches so they can continue to be “seal-mates”.

20″ x 20″ acrylic painting. After I finished the painting of the lion, I realized that there was a peace sign on his forehead. It was so fitting for our world today that I did not add any brushstrokes.

“Crystal Lake Sunrise”

During COVID, getting outside in the fresh air has been a necessity. Enjoying a bike ride with my son, walking the dog, or even doing the dreaded yard work has made the pandemic seem less challenging. After buying a new (to me) kayak, I decided to take its maiden voyage on a new (to me) lake in Moore County. So, on a recent day off from work, I got up before the sun and drove to Crystal Lake in Lakeview. As the sun was rising, I turned the kayak around and saw this gorgeous sunrise. I give all the credit for this photo to Mother Nature and the camera app on my phone. I hope you enjoy it too.
