Covid Beach

Covid Beach

Piece description from the artist

A woman in a red dress is encased by a bell jar as she stands staring out at an ocean sunset as waves come rolling in. She is surrounded by beauty and yet she is isolated from it as well. As this concept slowly turned from my initial sketch into a finished painting, the meaning behind it took on added significance on a rather personal level. So many who have been affected by the coronavirus have had to be completely isolated. They are alone in the world. Granted, the heroic efforts of our health care workers provide tremendous care. But out of necessity, isolation is needed and the individual is alone with his or her thoughts. The world keeps turning. The sun rises and the sun sets and like the timelessness of the ocean, the waves roll in and roll out but the person who has COVID isn't really an active participant. Each day, people from around the world are removed from this reality, made unable to participate.
My heart goes out to each and every family that has been affected by this dreaded virus. My hope is that we can find a cure. There are so many negative things going on in our world today. I wish we could all open our eyes to the beauty that is all around us. Love your neighbor and love this planet. And cherish every sunset. Because you never know if it might be your last.
