finding beauty & style in life—not just in a closet

Before Spain went on lockdown, Ruth Manning sketched Miraflores de la Sierra, a town north of Madrid where her daughter has lived for the past 15 years.

I came across a rather interesting article in The New York Times called The Quarantine Diaries.

Reporter Amelia Nierenberg writes, “Around the world, the history of our present moment is taking shape in journal entries and drawings…the pages tell the story of an anxious, claustrophobic world on pause.”

Ruth Manning is one of the few artists Nierenberg introduced me to.

I look forward to sharing the works of some of the other artists with you as I continue to write my story of life during the coronavirus pandemic.

Plus, I would love to hear about your stories, too.
