Changing the Rules of the Game
Hello friends. This is the fifty-eighth day of my mandatory leave from my work site due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the county in which I live is officially opening back up today under Phase 1.

That means there are still restrictions in place and masks and social distancing are strongly recommended. For example restaurants are allowed to open but travel is still prohibited. It is good news that we are moving forward and that it is being done cautiously. It's still going to be a little while before I know definitively about my returning to my job, so until then I will keep making art and sharing it here.

The collage I'm sharing today, Changing the Rules of the Game, is my way of stating that the rules that we have been living under, up until the world pandemic hit, have not worked for so many people and need to change.

The silver figure, above, is thought to have been made by a young Leonardo de Vinci as part of an alter panel titled Beheading of St. John the Baptist and was created for the Baptistery in Florence Italy. In my depiction, he is contemplating the world as it is while at the same time reflecting on ways in which governments, economies and people can shift to make the 'game' more equitable for everyone.

Thanks for looking and see you again soon.
