COVID Paintings – Reviews from the VIRTUAL Watercolor Show

When you finish an event, two years in the making, it’s wonderful to be able to share the good words with you. Let me share what people said about the “Saving Lives” Virtual Gallery Experience.

What They Said

After my Premiere event of “Saving Lives”, my watercolor exhibition on the COVID years, here’s what the audience had to say.

Just magnificent!
—Epping, New Hampshire

I loved it! Engaging and moving, gave me a pause to process everything. I was crying by the end of the movie.
—Maui, Hawaii

I tend to doze off watching film. But I loved how I felt compelled to want to keep watching. I was completely engaged.
—film critic, Lorenzo Vigil, Exeter, New Hampshire

It’s been so good to think about this topic together.
—Denton, Texas

I was touched by the amount of work Jonalyn put into this project, how she navigated all the different obstacles in each phase.
—Orange County, CA

This was fascinating. It ignited all kinds of memories and stories for me. Thank you!
—Yorktown, Virginia

What an incredible experience. Gorgeous, meaningful and creative. What a powerful medium – these images hit you in the gut and stick with you. Thank you for doing the challenging work of diving into COVID, listening to stories and painting these experiences.
—Steamboat, Colorado

Another Event for February

Save the date! 2/18 at 4pm 🕓 ET

WHAT IS IT? An art gallery dedicated to gently processing the COVID years. You will feel like you’re walking with me to the gallery and through the space I created on the COVID years. I will guide you through the making, collecting and stories behind each painting. Afterwards I’ll take questions and we will finish with a silent art auction.

WHEN? The LIVE event is Sunday, February 18, 4 pm ET.

KID FRIENDLY? This film is appropriate for kids. My son really enjoyed interacting with the stories and paintings. I can imagine sharing with your family and kids would make for a spiritually significant memory for years to come 🧡

A Tale of Two Grandmas

Mama Grace’s kitchen was alive.

I visited last February and still found food soaking, drying, ripening in her kitchen. Under that paper towel were mung beans sprouting, her fridge was full of food I couldn’t recognize.

Painting Outside: Why Do it? a real life plein air story

Warm enough to paint outside, I packed early for Seabrook, New Hampshire. Near the border of Massachusetts, Seabrook is renown for roughness. The half block deserted beach held several tantalizing lobster boats close to shore.

A New Adventure Sailing the World

The last five years, from the Rockies to the Atlantic Ocean, our family has inched closer to the water.

In a few months, we will be living off the coast of South Africa, on our catamaran “Lady Grey”. So many normal things are about to change, but some things will remain the same.
