Lockdown Art

by May 28, 2020Art Supplies

Jane has painted a series of pictures using acrylics during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Lockdown affects artists too…

While I’ve been in lockdown I decided that I would pick up my acrylics again. At this time of year I would normally be designing another screen for my friend’s children. But unfortunately due to our present circumstances that won’t be possible this year.

This one I started back in 2018 and sort of forgot about it. So, on finding it again, I thought it was about time to finish it. On the 3rd of April it was finally finished.

Who says I am not enjoying lockdown?

Next I painted this one of a memorial stone sculpture featuring a skull.

Completed 14th April.

In limbo

This one is of the Oneto family monument lost angel.

This angel represents an individual with his own doubts and uncertainties, he’s in limbo between life and death.

Completed 2nd of May.
