There Are So Many Fun Things To Do Now That the Girls Have Grown 2019. Oil on canvas, 16 x 20 inches
Could the time be approaching for pandemic reminisces? I hope so. If this is a reoccurring seasonal microbe nightmare, then art, (and everything else human), is going to have a very rough time of it.
Man, I hope not!
In April 2020, when all was quiet and the world waiting, I had a live exhibition show online. It was supposed to happen in Massachusetts—as a fundraiser for the Parent’s Fund at our daughter’s college. Instead it happened in our house. We had a good attendance. About 100 people followed me around the rooms. I guess binge-watching repeats on Netflix® was getting boring for everybody else, and not just me.
Dear Blurters, please step into my COVID house for the last time. It’s a long video exhibition. I don’t expect you to remain for the entire tour. I suggest you watch the first and last 3 minutes or so (and Rose’s elegant hand). If you hang on for more, notice how our daughter changes her clothes and appearance to make it look like the gallery has another visitor or two.
I’ll show a few of my favorite paintings from the exhibition, but you can go to my website for the complete visual list with titles:)
Thank you for coming to Empty Nest Neurotic!
