Day 57: March 18
No sooner had I put pen to paper than we were informed the California State Park we were staying at for the night was closing because of the corona virus outbreak. Off we go. Maybe later I’ll be able to get last week’s post together.
Day 58: March 19
If nothing else then just make lines and the rest will follow later. Even if I barely make one piece this week of lines, little by little every day. How life can crash in. We are traveling long days, much longer than we ever did before. We may slow down here, but home is the goal.
Day 59: March 20
I was able to put a little paint where it was needed on various pieces last night. Then worked on lines on a piece this morning. We were still in California when the new state-wide shelter-in-place order went through. Moving east. Still working on art through this.
Day 60: March 21
Tired. If you wonder where the progress photos went, I killed the camera on my phone. One too many drops. Photos will have to wait until the end of the week batch. It’s too much of a hassle to do it daily. Finished a textured piece last night. Working on others this morning. Started collecting more plant stuff on the road and, after learning my lesson, they are flattening in my sketchbook. Some of these earlier pieces are being held down by linen strips because they are so unruly.
Day 61: March 22
I did something this morning. But that was ages ago and a state of the union away. I showed up. Goodnight.
Day 62: March 23
Coffee. Pen. Paper. Morning light. Road.
Day 63: March 24
I’m here, minimally. But every little bit adds to the whole. Will attempt to carve out time to document works today. We. Will. See.
