During the pandemic, I moved from Manhattan to rural Upper Black Eddy, PA. My new normal is living on a former orchard. On the property is an abandoned barn. This a rendering of the barn. The materials I used include twigs from the river birch. I drew and painted with ink that I made from foraged black walnuts also in the property. The barn represents the isolation of living here and also the glassless windows are a portal to new possibilities.
