This painting was created in the late spring of 2020. I was practically paralyzed with fear and anxiety from the pandemic and lockdown. I spent most days crying off and on and could not fathom ever leaving my house again. This image started to take shape in my mind. I felt that painting it would help relieve the overwhelming sense of doom that so many of us were feeling at that time.
