Welcome to my 179th segment in my Tuesday's Truths series. This evening I was blessed to witness an avian creature adhering to the on going request/plea during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, which is to wash one's hands: A European starling visiting my garden seemingly understood the importance of washing too, as evidenced by these photo-ops (directly above) of this creature taking a bath in my garden.

By the way, European starlings have a story in volume three of my book series, Words In Our Beak  seen in he next image.

THE WORDS IN OUR BEAK SERIES

And to reiterate what I've been saying here on Blogger, "During this time where many people are confined to their homes due to lockdown restrictions (re the coronavirus pandemic), these books (whose stories are set in my rooftop garden) are great to have around as a reminder that there is still so much beauty in our fallen world."

In addition to washing hands and appreciating nature, there is much more one can do, including wearing a Face-mask. As you undoubtedly know, dear reader, it has recently been noted that the importance of wearing a mask cannot be stressed enough as a means a to prevent one person from inadvertently spreading the coronavirus to another.

But the effect of one seeing so many people wearing masks has already had a profound psychological impact on many persons; therefore when Fine Art America (FAA) recently informed me that it had added the ability to imprint my images on cloth face-masks designed for everyday use when out in public through its sister site, pixels.com, I was thrilled at the prospect of being able to have this done.

With so many people wearing face-masks, I started to think what it must be like for babies, toddlers, and older children — or residents of assisted living and nursing home facilities cut off from visits by family and friends — to be looking into the faces of adults wearing a “clinical–looking” mask.

How frightening and confusing that must be for them! I hope that seeing my images imprinted on face-masks makes the world a lot more cheerful for them.

I have joined with fellow FAA artists by selecting four of my images to be used with face-masks.

They can be seen in the following four images (or via the link https://bit.ly/2S15zjM to view them all together on FAA). Please note by clicking on a photo (below) for an individual mask, you can read specifics related to it.

Each mask, made from 100% polyester, is one-size-fits-all using two woven, elastic loops to secure it around the ears.

By the way, a press release announcing my masks was made live today! Please click here to read it and remember, when purchasing, be sure to read the full description on the product page.

Admittedly, this is a hard time for many throughout the world (understatement). Preventing the spread of COVID-19 is on most people’s minds these days and so is the desire to do something to show appreciation for the work being done by health care professionals, first responders and essential workers. Therefore, this evening I took part in the 43rd session of #ClapBecauseWeCare to show my solidarity as did many others; including ones seen in the next photographs.
