The empty swing. My pen and wash artwork to show the effect of Covid-19 on Australian playgrounds for most of this year. I'm happy that most stayed away from public gatherings and thus helped control the spread of the pandemic here. Do what's needed in your area to Stay Safe.
Happy Creativity Everyone. My art, art prints and art gifts are available here, and the art tutorials here.

This was the artwork in progress.
Working with ink feels like going back to my childhood, so why not paint a 1950s era playground, still standing much as it did in my childhood days here in central Victoria, Australia?
At this stage of the artwork, I had I hoped to have this work ready for video release within days, complete with Autumn colouring, as a ink line and watercolour wash painting.
At this stage of the painting, Reg developed a sore throat.
Other issues that attempted to derail this weeks art demonstration tutorial release was my husband Reg and myself once again, (I think this is three times now) being locked in our rooms, as social distancing, due to a perceived Covid-19 risk.
The computer with my almost completed video tutorial of this work was locked up in quarantine with my husband.
Unable to complete the video for the panned Friday evening release, I set about to create, another improvement for those who hit the notification button to view my YouTube video releases. now you only need to subscribe to the channel with the content you mainly wish to see. Thank you YouTuber friends for all your support.
As I completed the painting, but not the tutorial video, precautions were put in place.
Daniel Andrews is trending on Twitter. So he should be!
@DanielAndrewsMP is a true leader! He has been responsible for keeping our community safer, compared to many other places, from this currunt pandemic. I could not be ins a safer place, thanks to the responsibility of most Australians and due to great leadership by a premier we affectionatelly call Dan.
Daniel Andrews is the leader Victoria and Australia needs during this crisis!
Precautons, put in place fast, followed by quick testing for the Covid-19 virus, as happened to Reg when he developed a sore throat, are saving lives, by stoping as much spread of the virus as is possible, here in Autralia.
