This piece marks an important moment in time during the 2020 pandemic. As we came out of lockdown, as summer was beginning in the United States, there were so many unknowns. We were able to leave our homes but the true joy of summer days was overshadowed with the weight of the worldwide pandemic. 

As I attempted to show my excitement that school was out of session and there were no more virtual demands for my kid’s schooling, summer still carried a darkness. 

The muted colors represent the calm we felt from zero obligations being all events were cancelled. Our family loved the quality time we were able to take advantage of. No distractions. We spent our time playing games, watching movies, and going for walks. A lot to be grateful for.

The black paint was applied using a splatter technique, creating active vibrancy. This affect reveals the excitement of summer arriving and lockdown mode being over. However, the feeling of somberness of the pandemic still being present is reflected through the color black. These intuitive marks landed randomly. Once I completed the painting I noticed somber facial expressions throughout the black paint splatter and drips.
