There’s no question about it people are very, very tired of this
pandemic. In Toronto the lockdown is now continuing until March 8
at least. My last once a week class in person as a community College
teacher was on March 9, 2020. A year ago on this date we really didn’t
know what was going to hit us, but it has.
That’s why discovering art by artists I haven’t known about before
is so inspiring. I’m showing a drawing tonight by the artist Israel E.
Covarrubias, a Mexican artist. I love this drawing. I love the mood, the
technique, everything about it.
I don’t know the title for the work. It is beautiful. I hope someday when this
pandemic is over that I can get to meet the artist, and all of the other
wonderful artists I've met in this strange year.
