‘Water of Life’ by Franzeska Ewart
75 x 50 cm, oil on canvas board, unframed
During Lockdown I painted a series of 3 studies called Brave New World, which show how the lack of human intervention has changed our world in positive ways. The lack of pollution has cleared our skies and waters, and nature has flourished. People in enforced isolation have become more aware of the beauty around them, which they may have taken for granted before.
My hope is that some of that appreciation and wonder will remain in our post-Covid world.
