During the current pandemic I have tried to keep busy by focusing on my health and my art. I am a painter which requires a lot of sitting, so I have been running to get exercise. I am up to 3.5 mile runs now. I love the feeling when I am finished with a run. The endorphins put me in a better mood than when my run started. The added bonus is losing weight and toning up!
On my runs I pass the restaurant shown in the photo in Venice, California. I like to paint things from everyday life, which is why I love urban sketching so much. I am looking forward to the day when we can once again patronize restaurants with friends. Painting this eatery reminds me that this quarantine is temporary and we have so much to look forward to in the future.
