So many thoughts and emotions around COVID-19. I had to paint it out—this emotional tempest in my mind. Our lives literally spiraling out of our control, our privileged lives restricted.
The spiral, bottom left, literally 2020 spiraling out of control.
Collaged fragments of topographic maps from places we didn’t travel.
A stylized COVID virus and microscopic diatom, upper left, advances in medical science.

The tree of victory, bottom right, the “light at the end of the tunnel”
