I painted “Lockdown” at the beginning of March when we had to self-quarantine. It reminded me that when I was young, when I was scared, I would put my hands to my eyes, partially obscuring my vision so that I would not be overwhelmed. Much has happened during the last few months. I continue to watch and witness, even if I am looking through my fingers. From a deadly virus sweeping through our world to a unending flow of racism that has been a consistent major issue, that has still yet to be fully addressed by our government and society as a whole.
