Time-Lapse on YouTube

paint on canvas, 8 x 10

Here's a time-lapse I made at the spurring of my friend, Charmaine--she is wicked smart and super cool and also Associate Artistic Director of Smart Orchestra.

It's not exactly what I'd call a pretty painting ? But definitely something that needed to get out. All of the anxiety and stress caused by mask-wearing, hand sanitizing, social-distancing, and just lack of people contact.

I'm trying to remember to reach out to my friends in the ways that I can--through text and email, photograph and funny story--spanning that silence until we can actually hang out together again.

Hope you're having an okay weekend.

The $50 we raised from virtual ticket sales went straight to Peace One Day 

and their fabulous organization. Thank you SO much

to all of the amazing family and friends who gave their time, 

energy, effort and enthusiasm.

$35.50 GBP = $50.65 USD

I hope you are all doing well and I look forward to collaborating for Peace Day 2021 !
