An odd week. An eerie week. The world is basically shut down in an attempt to slow the spread of Coronavirus. My days have been pretty much the same routine as they always are. As an artist, I live a very isolated life, at least when I’m home. The past several years, I’ve traveled more than half the year, being home in only two or three week intervals. Last summer I decided to try something different, to travel in larger chunks of time so that I can be home in the studio for larger chunks of time. Fortunately for me, I’m not scheduled to head to Paris until the middle of July. We’ll see if that happens.

The world appears to be spinning around me in intervals of generosity, panic, and the eerie stillness of empty parking lots and closed stores. I continue my routine of awakening, sketching, filming, editing, painting and meditating. I am grateful that the people of the world are uniting to do what we can to save lives.

Spring is near. Daffodils have begun to bloom in New Jersey.

  1. Yes, Chris this has been an eerie week indeed!!
    My travels to the south were exciting, but also anxious. Much to tell you. My life will be changing by the summer. Love the daffodils!
    Mine are also up and in bloom. Hope to talk soon!
