ANTIBODY is the second smaller piece in the COVID series. It is the same size as MUTATION and plays quite well with it…a purposeful consideration. I discovered this canvas when I was “rearranging” my supply closet…I can’t say cleaning out…just

Finding my Way

First things first….I did not like the first painting in the Covid series…the one I posted last week. It was a good practice piece, but needs improvement, or maybe something else…. I have moved on to painting no. 2 and
