Session 57


Session for #ClapBecauseWeCare  (tributes to first responders, health care professionals or essential workers who are keeping us safe during the coronavirus pandemic ended a couple) finished about two hours ago. As usual many people took part in the tribute. The woman in the image atop this entry is a regular participant.

And the two women in the next series of images are performing a duet on  pots and pans.


Besides showing appreciation through tributes such as #ClapBecauseWeCare tributes and by practicing the traits known as patience and fortitude, the main thing that one needs to do is to wearing a face-mask when out in public.

Doing this is truly a sign of appreciation for our healthcare professionals, first responders and essential workers for most everyone knows, it has recently been noted that the importance of wearing a face-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,, 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 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.

Fyi, a press release announcing my masks  was sent out earlier this month) and remember, when purchasing, be sure to read the full description on the product page.
