“Flying the Friendly Skies”

All of our physical movement changed, from riding trains, buses and airplanes, to walking through a park. Airfare prices dropped and many people traveled during COVID. Jonalyn and her family spent weeks in their conversion van, traveling from state-to-state. When they drove into South Dakota for Mount Rushmore and saw no one masked, they were surprised and reminded of the pre-COVID world.

So many differences in responses, in fears, in courage, revealed in these years, across our country and world. But some things remained the same, the same majestic and inspiring mountain sunsets and seaside sunrises. In this painting, you might be able to recall the muffled experience of travel inside a backdrop we can all recognize is beautiful. The skies never changed their friendliness, a warm invitation to anyone who was brave enough to leave their home.

Did you try to travel during COVID? What did you encounter?


This painting was part of Jonalyn’s Saving Lives Gallery and Virtual Watercolor Event.

All Jonalyn’s paintings arrive with a living edge. You can frame her art by either covering or showcasing this raw edge. Jonalyn’s favorite way to frame her work is in a “float mount” showcasing this raw, living edge.
