Italy on lock-down

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, sing, make music, read 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.

How are you coping? I hope all of you are safe and well in these strange and worrying times.
