Shields Up

Painting: Oil

Though sheltering in place, I still take daily walks. What’s most evident in this piece is the larger than life spirit of my determination. I am determined to stay healthy, I am determined to stay positive. It is also evident that I need layers of protection in order to do so. I left the piece raw and messy to truly reflect the times. It’s the first time I did not try to paint me pretty.
