I think the title really says it all.

It’s a quarantine diary.

I’m holding up pretty well.

Until I’m not.

Never-ending isolation hurts sometimes.

My mind kind of collapses in on itself with worry and overthinking and under sleeping.

I feel so lonely and weird sometimes.

Which makes me isolate even more.

Not. Good.

When people ask how you are, is anyone brave enough to say:

I’m not OK.

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

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


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.
