I want to think about counting superfluous things:
Social Media Likes.
Calories of potato chips and cola consumed prostrate on the couch.
Number of hours of TV watched. Plus Youtube. Ok, and TikTok.
And not think about counting the gut-punching things:
How long it’s been since I’ve had romance in my life and how long it will be until there is human contact.
The New York Times leaderboard counts The Deaths. Are we really living in a plague?! Some of us are counting down the number of days a certain someone has left in office.
These small, original portraits are painted on top pages cut and upcycled from my sketchbooks.
This portrait is from the series, 100 Portraits in 100 Days: A Quarantine Diary.
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.
Materials: Acrylic, Ink, Wax, Graphite and heart-shaped metalic confetti on paper.
Size: 5 X 7 Inches (13 x 18 CM)
This is a signed and authenticated original painting by Lisa Sonora.
