Rainy Days and Mondays

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down, the song goes. Today was a rainy day. In a way I was glad it rained, I have a little garden and it was getting quite dry and the water collection tubs were nearly empty. No amount of watering seems to do the job of ‘real’ rain to water the plants. But I do love the sun. The strange situation we all find ourselves in now has crept into my thoughts more than I would like it to have. Other family members are also disturbed by the daily focus on the virus and it is making normal tasks strangely unusual. And now there seems no clear end of the pandemic in sight. However, I have made some work today, this collage, on old music is approx. A4 in size, not my usual colour choices perhaps it is fitting with the oddness of life in lockdown I change things in my work. The text says, ‘do everything’. An aspect of my shortcomings, taking on lots of things and never focusing long enough on anything to find a full resolution. Still there is always tomorrow, right?
