My last blog post was February 1, 2020 and it seems an entire lifetime ago. Little did I know that six weeks later everything in our state, including school, would be shut down due to the pandemic and I would be teaching my 4th quarter middle school and high school art students online. Those early surreal days of lockdown left me a little unbalanced and I was too unfocused to create anything at all. I’ve since found my feet and been working with renewed energy on my theater box assemblages over the spring and summer months. "The Scholar of Delft" I completed my largest (42” x 15” x 10”) theater box to date, “The Scholar of Delft”. This is an homage to 17th century Dutch painter Jan Vermeer.
