Covid Creativity: 27Dec2021

by Bobi Leutschaft Poitras

I painted this piece over the course of a few days, as a way to remind myself that I have not been the same person all my life.  That sounds strange, but I am one who tends to move along, trying new things and sometimes leaving old ones behind.  

This tendency has, naturally, slowed down with age and a feeling of being “settled” in Alexandria and among my peeps here, but I still have a longing to experience new things.   

My face is left blank for two reasons. 1) I suck at faces, and 2) I’m still looking for myself.  

I played one little trick – I signed my name on top instead of in my customary place at the bottom.  Why?  Because in the painting I’m looking down and I thought I’d make it a bit harder for me to find myself…

Looking For Myself,

  1. I think artists should always be searching and fluid, never stagnant and predictable: otherwise new and innovative art would never emerge. So good for you Bobi! Keep on keeping on with what you are doing.
