“The painting ‘Husky Love’ is from my new ‘Love and Joy’ series. I started working on the series before the current pandemic situation. The series highlights the bond we have with people we love — our family and friends and also the love and care we have for our pets.
As the CoVid-19 virus spread around the world I felt the urgency and necessity to paint like never before. Being isolated from the outside world, unable to do many normal everyday activities, worrying about my own health as well as the well-being and lives of all the people who are dear to my heart put an enormous stress on me like everybody else. During this time my art studio became my sanctuary. While I paint, the outside world and all the worries that are associated with it cease to exist. All I think about is the canvas in front of me and what I want to accomplish. Art truly has a healing power. The past few weeks have been very prolific for me as an artist.
The theme of my series ‘Love and Joy’ also became more significant to me. I, like everyone else, came to understand even more how important our families and friends are, how fragile life is and how much we should cherish each other.”
