As familiar as the skin on our faces
My name is Rowena and I am 16 years old. I live in Sonoma County, California (USA). I created this piece during the first few weeks of quarantine while I was very sick. I didn't have the virus, but I had to go to the doctor's office and I took it as the perfect opportunity to draw what so many people are going through worldwide. Here in Sonoma County, the masks that we wear have become as familiar as the skin on our faces because of the past fires destroying our homes and now this global pandemic. I use art as a way to express how I'm feeling and I have used this time to do more art then ever, which has really helped me out. During this project, the only media I used was graphite, which is around my 4th realistic pencil peice.
