This painting represents the loneliness of Covid19 Pandemic. The figure stares at the outside world which appears bright and hopeful. The inside is dark and solemn but the highlight on the figure shows a promise of recovery.

“Through the Rain”
Look through the rain and the dark clouds to see how pretty everything is.
“Conundrum” originated as a one-act play, performed at Polaris Repertory Co. in NYC. I rewrote it as a film and produced it independently with the help of a wonderful group of people. Interestingly the female star, Erika Chase is the daughter of a reporter at The Pilot. She has most recently been seen in “Manifest” on NBC.

“The Colors of Southern Pines”
The Sandhills is known for the beautiful Long Leaf Pines. As I paint during this Covid-19 crisis, I have had more time to notice and appreciate the amazing canopy that they provide. We need to protect the ones still standing. This painting is in honor of the color, shade, habitat, and beauty they give this area that we live in.
Elephants stand strong together and take care of each other. To get through hard times, we can do this too.

“Pandemic Musings: April, 2020”
This is one in a short series of six poems I wrote this year which express the emotional impact of Covid-19 in my life, and which I’d like to share with others who may be experiencing similar things.
During the dark days of March and early April, I envisioned a couple walking toward the light and a place of refuge. Together, yet alone. Safe, as raging waters pass by. Hopeful that the journey’s end will bring them to a place of peace and tranquility.
“Looking for the Trail”

Handmade COVID Card
Being a former elementary teacher, I guess I have never stopped loving to color, cut and paste! These cards are meant to brighten someone’s day during this pandemic.
