In the first weeks of the 2020 lockdown, I discovered what would be my isolation companion in the Facebook group Socially Distant Fest. 

Started by musicians in New York City and run by a staff of volunteer admin, the group allowed musicians, performing from anywhere, to go live and take tips directly from their online accounts.

I became a dedicated audience member watching and listening to people all over the world.  Then it occurred to me that this was an endlessly inspire source of miniature portraits designed by the subjects themselves. 

I took over 200 screenshots of performances which were naturally cropped and sized to the perimeters of whatever device the performer broadcast from.  

I continue to move forward on the painting collection and will ultimately produce a book.  The artworks are not for sale at this time.
