CUT-AND-PASTE IN THE TIME OF COVID




Carol’s cut-and-paste art

The cut-and-paste piece above is a self-portrait made in the time of COVID. While sitting with a girlfriend who was doing a similar project, I selected and collected scraps from magazines. I arranged the biggest pieces first and worked down to the smallest.  When I created it at the end of January this year, I was waiting to get an appointment to get the COVID vaccine.

 Carol (Dec.’20) says, “I am coping very well, although I miss inviting friends over to work on jigsaw puzzles.  I have an imagination that’s active enough so that I am always puttering.  When I get lonesome, I pick up the phone, send a card, write an email, or attend a Zoom meeting.  I look forward to Ninepatch even more.  Thanks, Frances.”
