“This painting aims to take the viewer’s mind away from the chaos of a global pandemic and instead focuses on the peace that can be found in the safety of isolation. I chose to paint a lake scene because of the peacefulness that lakes instill in my mind when I see them, and my hope is that the viewer of this artwork will find that same peace in this lake. I wanted to include the New York City skyline with a bright red sky to symbolize the chaos of the pandemic that we have all experienced at some point in the past month or so. I chose also to separate these two very different landscapes with a small forest to symbolize the isolation that separates us from the anxiety of the front lines of this COVID-19 pandemic. This painting reminds me (the artist) of the fact that peace can be found even in situations such as the Coronavirus pandemic and I hope that this painting reminds the viewer of that fact too.”
