Where are you currently?
I'm an NYC painter, at present happily stranded in rural California.
Has your art making shifted in response to the pandemic? How?
I awoke three days ago wondering , "What is the type of work I should be doing in this time of pandemic and Trump?" At first, the idea came that political protest imagery (Trump) of fear, death, some kind of apocalyptic image (pandemic). This didn't seem appropriate. Then I thought, it should be a big picture type image, an image from a serene, cosmic conscious state of mind. That would be most appropriate. I'm working on it...to be continued.
