All done with this graphite drawing. I was hoping to get it done while Minnesota was having its snowstorm (last Sunday), but, unsurprisingly, quarantine had other ideas for me. I wound up spending the majority of the storm holed up in my room feeling bummed. About exactly what, I can’t even say. I think I just miss my community. I think I just miss being able to laugh, joke. I know I can do that on my own, like I’ve gotten myself to laugh on a number of occasions, sure. But I’d really like to share a laugh with a friend or two. Or a meal. Or a beer. Or a movie. Or anything, anything. And because I felt bummed, I had to take a break from drawing for a few days.
I discovered earlier this week my furlough from one of my jobs has been extended until late July. So this drawing will not be my last of the quarantine. Most likely, instead, it will be my second of many – I will not be working much, if at all, for at least three and a half more months.
