Like so many of us, I am now in “self-isolation” due to the coronavirus outbreak, plus two kids at home for who knows how long. I’m taking this opportunity to explore some mediums I’ve either taken a long break from, or haven’t yet learned, specifically charcoal (old, messy friend) and pastels (new, probably messy, hopefully friend.) We’ll see how it goes. If anyone else is going to join me in having distraction art materials sent, I’m exceedingly fond of Dick Blick. And hopefully I’ll finally get that darn online store set up.
