Artwork and Text by Cynthia Dimaria
The Covid-19 pandemic has been a soul-searching time for me and inspired this work. To keep my sanity I paint.
I have had a lot of support from Janice Gough, founder of the Art Foundation of Desert Hot Springs. She has given numerous opportunities to show and display my work. I am thankful for her interest and friendship. She has been there for me in many ways.
In one of my paintings I show a couple in a colorful environment. The entities are awkward in structure and they are confused on how to communicate with each other. A sort of, where do we start now.
I want everybody to stay safe and healthy. Wearing a mask is like having a seat belt on. So buckle up.
This too shall pass.
