Every Saturday night, I have a video date with two friends, Zen and Jorun. We each represent a different generation. We met about thirty years ago at a spiritual retreat center in Wisconsin, where we all went to meditate and study A Course in Miracles.

These women are more like my big sisters, than a mom or grandmother substitute.

They give me advice, they remind me to love myself, no matter what.

No matter what I’m struggling with, Jorun will ask me:

Are you looking into the mirror every day and saying, I love you?

Hell no.

Mirror Work is what Louise Hay called it. Saying kind things to yourself while looking into the mirror.

It’s terrifying. Have you ever tried it?


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. 

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.
