An enduring memory of pandemic life is the hive that was my family's home, all spaces in use, particularly the kitchen. Our circle widened as far as the vegetable garden and nearby farms and orchards. I thought about germinating, planting, harvesting and preparing. I was sustained and engaged by our contained world, while also provoked by conversations about race, climate and politics, processing them together with my family and in solitude. I hope my paintings reveal some of these layered observations.

My wife and I travelled to Santa Fe right before Covid struck and we went to the Railyard Farmers Market one of our first mornings and picked up some fruit. After a long day of hiking we can back to our room and this scene was on the desk in the fading afteroon light. It was a welcome, nourishing sight
