It's hard to escape all the news going on abut the Covid-19 virus, television, social media Here in Sicily as in the rest of Italy we are following the government rules and not leaving our homes.
I'm grateful that I live in a house that is fairly isolated and we have plenty of outside space.
Painting or any form of art is a great way to escape reality.....dance, sing, make music, read books...it all helps. Here is one of my most recent paintings of late blackberries covered in cobwebs.
I took the reference photo in October while in the UK for a quick trip to see my family. It seems so long ago and now it's impossible to leave Sicily let alone Italy! Lets hope for better times.
