Ominous skies, ominous times

In this time of uncertainty there is nothing better than to keep painting. This picture, as someone on Instagram noted, looks as ominous as the nightly news. But it was only because a Southerly brought in rain and big winds.

In Europe these new virus cases are going up everywhere. In northern Italy especially, old people are dying in Lombardy and people are terrified. They are talking of lockdowns whereby people cannot leave their homes. My old friend in Milan is petrified and my friend in East Sussex UK is upset. I guess it was inevitable that a pandemic would arrive upon the world scene. Here there are cases of this new virus popping up everywhere.

Meanwhile I will keep painting.
