I venture outside, usually with my dog Digory, to walk to my studio downtown. Spend a few hours there making art or writing, while Dig naps in his dog bed or sometimes walks on top of my collage cuttings to look out the 4th floor window. If we’re really “lucky” he’ll spot a neighborhood dog and bark his head off. The studio is my other indoor oasis (my primary oasis is home), and I go there at least 3 days a week. Yesterday I shot some glimpses of my surroundings and some collaged and assembled images. It is when I’m in the midst of creating that I am happiest, whether during a pandemic or not.
