During the pandemic, the uncertainty and isolation led to a new series of work completed from my car. Obeying the Stay-at-Home orders, I began this drawing from my car facing the Arkansas river, just 8 blocks from my home. It became a prolonged drawing that I worked on through the shutdown, change of seasons, smoke obscuring the mountains and the political and racial unrest. I was working on this view of a road that leads into an unknown future. A future that could get even more uncertain as the days passed. This drawing went through an evolution that shows the individual and collective isolation and unrest of the time.
The spread of the virus has kept my drawing trips closer to home. Drawing is vital to my practice and with the onset, it has kept me inside my car, close to home and working more in the studio.
