Today was weird. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has been canceled due to the Corona virus, and I’ve been sad about it all day. I went to the store and got all kinds of food, just in case I end up staying home a lot over the next two weeks – though I’m still tempted to see people while avoiding crowds – and I ended up showing the cashier at HEB pictures of the horse I’m trying to make. Today I covered it in papier-maché and it looks awkward but I’m learning.
My friend who works for the University of Houston School of Social Work came over to see the painting I’ve been working on. She had some brilliant suggestions, and after she left I started putting together the various portraits with the background.
