2020 was a strange year for all of us. I feel that I benefited more than most be the imposed isolation that COVID presented. I spent the summer making mosaics of all the Planets (including Pluto) and day and Night – in the garden behind the house at the Willy St Art Center. Outdoor mosaics do not hold up in Wisconsin, as well as say, in Mexico, due to the freeze/thaw cycle. I am trying to embrace the (minimal?) deterioration that is resulting – and learn from it.
