This is a strange time for us all. Summer has arrived and much seems the same - the heat, the mowing of lawns, the blossoming of colour everywhere, the immersion in the great outdoors. And yet this is a summer unlike any other, with the persistent undercurrent of the pandemic changing the way we interact on the street, in stores, at the park. There is an uncertainty about what lies ahead. Is the threat from the virus merely catching its breath before it overwhelms us once again? Living in the moment seems essential right now, and I am grateful for all that is good. I pause and watch and wonder how my art will be influenced by this time.
