In the last 48 hours, California has recorded more than 100,000 positive cases of Covid. Our hospitals are full and it makes me resolved to continue to stay at home, as we have been ordered to do. All this makes me glad that I have my online art class and homework to do.
I started this piece by beginning with random marks and a few preselected colors, all the while attending to the elements and principles of design. Then I noticed a face and some little figures scattered throughout the page. They evoked a feeling for me of the distracting thoughts and sounds that come from multitasking while listening to the news. Anyway, those little figures got my attention and I forgot all about my class and had just fun. It is a good thing I have a few more days to get my homework finished.
