I want my dots back! or: The Corona Chronicles, part sixteen

storytelling,happy art

‘give me my dots’, mixed media drawing/painting/collage in a sketchbook

I love dots! All sized, all colors. I just love the round playful shapes, that tend to give you a festive feeling.
These last months however, I feel a bit reserved towards drawing dots. I feel that the moment I draw a spike on it or color it green it turns into a symbol of the VIRUS. 
It is like my favourite form is hijacked by Covid-19.
Yesterday a made this painting to get my dots back. In the morning it were just dots of all sizes and colors. In the evening my dots turned into flowers. and that felt sooo good! Isn’t that the miracle of art: I can create my own symbols. My dots are flowers and happy feelings, no virusses.
