A Yearning Desire For Art

Submitted by: Ann W.

Materials: Acrylic paint, wooden canvas, paintbrushes, wooden easel

This is a photo I took at Artists For Humanity, the company I work for. This is the job I absolutely love and wish to never depart from, but this pandemic has forced us to leave things behind that we hoped to never stray. The message I want to spread of wanting and longing for something is not only for those who love art but also for those who miss the arms of family, the lips of loved ones, the true sound of friends’ laughs, as well as the drive for passion.

Materials: Laptop

My laptop has helped me get through this quarantine for many reasons. The biggest reason is online education. I am very grateful to have a nice computer because many kids do not have access to one at all to do their school work. It is the main resource everyone has been using to do their school work. It has become a big part of my life as well the past month. It has kept me very busy including face-timing my friends and keeping in touch with them over text as well.

My Mother’s Rings

Submitted by: anonymous

Materials: Gold my mother found as a child, opal more gold

I am back in my parent’s house because of the pandemic, preparing for my comprehensive exams in my childhood bedroom. In these “unprecedented times,” my mother is letting me wear my two favourite rings that belong to her, since I can’t exactly take them anywhere right now.


Fluffy Socks

Submitted by: Tasha

Materials: Cotton, cozy fluffiness, and so much dog hair

Working at home has lots of changes and I am not handling them very well. One change that is weirdest, one that I did not think would be a challenge, is cold feet. I always have warm to hot feet… ALWAYS. I am now in a perpetual state of chill. These socks were still pristine from two Christmases ago, never worn. But now… everyday!
