These times I miss my model and look forward to have her over to sit for me again
Since Corona has brought a new reality and forces so many countries to lock down, there is nothing much left for me but to teach some of the students that have the guts to show up and in the evenings I spend my time drawing and painting. But hey, the life of an artist always looks that way.
The Corona virus roams around Planet Earth and holds everyone tightly in its grip. Everybody stays put and I almost feel suffering from a locked-in syndrom, with no particular place to go and the only expression I can make is through the tip of my pencil and teaching the students that will come.
