During the pandemic, we often are teased by the feeling of isolation and seclusion. But even though we have entered a new time of unpredictability and darkness, it is to acknowledge that the sun still shines. Despite all being distant at home, the sun still comes up and lusters us to remember that even through moments of confinement, we still have slivers of light to capture and relish.
“Lighted Afternoon” is a painting I did of my personal experiences through quarantine. In the room, there is a sense of being encased by darkness and isolation, but through the window, gleams of sunlight highlight the room. During these hazy days, I like to just take a moment to embrace the sunshine and play my ukulele.
