Anxiety

20″ x 20″ Acrylic on gallery profile canvas

I’d be willing to bet that most people in the world have at least some level of anxiety right now. Every email, every post I open, everyone is talking about the Corvid-19 outbreak and how it affects life as we knew it. The only thing we know for sure is that we are all in this together.

My husband was officially laid off from his job today, so right now, we have zero income. Hopefully he can get unemployment, like the millions of other people that can’t work. My only income comes from the occasional sold painting, and I’m pretty sure people are not going to buy art for a while. 

But, art must go on! Thank goodness I could never get bored, I’m naturally a homebody, and getting lost in an art project is the healthiest way I know to spend my confinement. In addition to painting, I also dug out my polymer clay supplies, and I’ve been sewing and gardening, all things that keep me distracted and content!

Since I haven’t purchased any new art supplies for while, I’ve been painting over less than favorite paintings which is what we have here. This painting has had several “lives” but I think it has finally found it’s forever identity!

  1. Anxiety is right in your case. I’m really sorry to hear your husband was laid off. I would assume California would have special Covid-19 relief? New Mexico, as backward as it is, is offering partial to full unemployment for people with reduced hours or those who are laid off. I saw the Recording Academy And MusiCares Established a COVID-19 Relief Fund for musicians. The Artwork Archive has posted Financial Relief Resources for Artists During COVID-19 at https://www.artworkarchive.com/blog/financial-relief-resources-for-artists-during-covid-19 you should check out if you haven’t already. I wish you two the best of luck working through these hard times.

  2. So sorry to hear about your husband’s work, Tiffany. I truly hope he get assistance quickly; I think ya’ll are lucky to be in California vs various other states. And you are truly right – “The only thing we know for sure is that we are all in this together.” Between all our own uncertainties, and those even more vulnerable, we have all the reasons we need to know working together is the right thing right now 💕

    1. Absolutely, Adan! We need to support our neighbors and accept support when it’s necessary. I also think it’s really important to continue these interactions online, to continue to support each other and keep the creative community connection!

      1. I agree! We might be more sporadic at times, times being as they are 😊 but yes, we must continue supporting our best efforts! Hope you are doing well, despite all the problems, Tiffany! Us? Some days better than others, but finding solace here and there, and making peace best we can 💕

  3. These must be difficult times for you when you lose your income.I hope you find a way through.
    I thought that I recognised this painting and now understand why and I see you’ve signed it twice – I guess for the extra work that you’ve done on it.

    1. Thank you, Graham! I’m always optimistic, we are already good at being frugal, things will get better someday! I’m surprised you noticed the ARP, that was kind of an accident, but I let it go, I wondered if anyone would see it!
