Counting Time | Redeux | Self Portrait Artist

 "Counting Time"

I reedited a previous Covid art piece called "Counting Time" .

I originally created this piece in June 2020 to show the time passing of indoor lockdown and how much time we spent not doing "normal" activities. On Saturday our last mandate of wearing masks was lifted. My kids went to school today maskless for the first time in 2 years. 726 days into Covid. As this could be the last mandate as we return to daily life, I wanted to update this counting time piece to reflect the entire Covid journey. I must say all the tally marks really pop on this version!

Take Two

Take Two
"It is always possible to do a thing better the second time." - Henry Ford

Here we are again. Covid take two. For my state we went backward in our numbers and now restrictions. We have officially entered the second phase of the virus. 

One thing I have been thinking about during this phase two lockdown is what I didn't do during phase one. I believe I am not alone in wishing they had done more back in the Spring, like projects around the home, teaching or learning of a skill, and/or used the time to do something you usually wouldn't. There are things I did of course, but I look back and wish I had done a few others. Right now we have the holidays to keep us occupied, but looking at the new year I want to use this time efficiently and not look back and wish I had used the time home better.

Now for those that haven't shut down or changed their lifestyles as much or have relaxed since Spring, its also a second chance to quarantine, cut back on activities, and/or look at what actions you can do to help minimize the spread of the virus this time around. 

Whatever you do during this second lockdown, do it better!

Extra: I have two versions of this image. One for my specific state and our date of when regulations went backward and then the one that is a generic phase two. The generic will be used in my official Covid series and on my websites, but wanted to make myself a specific image to have for my own personal collection.

"You find your best flame just before burn out."

Theme: Fire

This is one of my random type images. It has been awhile since I created an image with various elements and put them together to make an image. The elements I used were: Solid background, reaching, ladder, and fire. These lead to me coming up with a sketch for a woman climbing a ladder to light a candle.

"“In solitude, there is healing. Speak to your soul. Listen to your heart. Sometimes in the absence of noise, we find the answers.”  - Amanda Ricks

Theme: Solitude

Another in my covid series. This one represents the loneliness people have felt.

“Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn't make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more.” ― Nicholas Sparks

Another in my Covid19 series. In this series I am creating images that represent different features of our Covid struggles. A big part of that is not being able to see loved ones. Here is my image representing being separated from those we love.

Special thanks to my mom for cooperating for this one!

"And like the moon, we must go through phases of emptiness to feel full again" - Anon

Theme: Emptiness

Another in my Covid19 Series. I wanted to convey the mood of our hearts feeling empty during this time. When thinking about this theme, I came across the above quote and loved how it conveyed what I was feeling. We need to go through this hard time, have things taken away, to really appreciate what we love and what we want most from life.

Sidenote: I also want to add that I am terrible at titles for my artwork. I can finish a piece and sit here for a few days trying to figure out a title! It's another reason I love doing this project. If I can't figure out a title, I just use the theme. Sure its not original, but its better than sitting here for days without a title or coming up with one that really doesn't fit.

Time to Fly

Time to Fly
"Let go, release what you were never meant to carry"

Theme: Freedom

Freedom is a state of mind, the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved. I wanted to create an image symbolizing releasing all those things we all carry, representing freeing oneself.
