The Coronavirus Series

   The worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 (The Coronavirus) came to the United States in early 2020. It entered the west coast from China. It entered the east coast from Europe. In early March it arrived in Chicago, Illinois, and spread from there.

   On March 23, 2020, the State of Illinois ordered a shutdown of all non-essential businesses. My response to this "stay-at-home" order was to spend more time painting. 

   The "Coronavirus Series" began with a painting of toilet paper and it progressed from there. I had no master plan and there was no logical order. I just recorded my life under self-quarantine; what I saw on the news and what I did at home, day after day.
