The challenge to create an art piece about their Coronavirus experience went out to a number of artists. All of us who lived in the Lake Chapala area were given a box of ingredients to start us off. We could use as many of them as we wished and add whatever ingredients we wanted to. To see the original challenge and items each of us received for the Lonely Artist Covid Challenge, go HERE. If you want to joint in on the challenge, send links to your blog or photos of your project to this blog.

This is her completed piece
One of the objects given to everyone was a cardboard catfood box. Candace made hers into a retablo box. Clever.
“Rosie, Queen of Corona”
Someone contributed a number of swatches of different material.. and a bottle full of buttons. Someone else gave us all google eyes. Here’s a closeup of Candace’s clever use of all of these elements.
Someone had contributed a number of beer caps that Candace used as miniature picture frames. The circles surrounding them are cutup soda straws–one of my contributions.
Hopefully, Candace will tell us why she chose the photos she did.
You’ll notice these wine corks in all of our pieces, as well.
We all also received these joker cards.
