Painting helps me integrate everything I am thinking and feeling, in a wordless way that’s hard to describe. Maybe it’s like how the function of dreaming works.

I think about what’s going on in the world and how people are affected and being with it all.

This portrait is of a guy who just lost his job, painted on top of my own upcycled sketchbook pages.

I dump out lists of thoughts on the pages from time to time, so they are not stuck in my head where they are in danger of malingering in the basement of my psyche.

Meanwhile, #stayhome #staysafe and maybe think about making your own project for 100 days.

This portrait is from the series, 100 Portraits in 100 Days: A Quarantine Diary.


Materials: Acrylic, Ink, Wax, Graphite on Paper

Size: 5 X 7 Inches (13 x 18 CM)


This is a signed and authenticated original painting by Lisa Sonora.

What began as a creative challenge to focus my energies during the first weeks of solo quarantine in March 2020, evolved into a diary of my experience.

I decided that painting one portrait a day for 100 days would be my solo quarantine project. Of course, not at all anticipating that quarantine would actually last that long. Surely I was overestimating?

These small, original portraits are painted on top pages cut and upcycled from my sketchbooks.
