This is the second piece in the sub-series of the Covid 19 paintings, one of three 36×36 pieces. The vertical stripe on this one helps to keep the virus out until it reaches the vaccine on the right side of the painting.
I represented the virus as fully loaded, drifting to the vaccinated side and then disintegrating as the vaccine does its job. Wouldn’t it be grand if this vaccine was already available to everyone? Instead of using cut out vellum letters, I painted the word on this piece because it seemed more personal and comfortable, feelings a vaccinated person may experience as they feel more protected.
Always optimistic…Hoping for the best…from the studio
