A journal: 20 Days during the Pandemic. Getting back in the studio. Daily Writing and Studio Practice September 21st to October 10th 2020.

My name is Jennifer Hynes, I live in San Rafael, California. I am an Artist/Parent.

Each day I will add a piece of art made in my studio and a writing to this portfolio.

Day 1

Drip, drop the faucet. Bath fills with water only because there is a leak. Morning battles with FM systems, my children, each with their own barriers to their virtual education. My daughter can’t hear, my son can’t sit still. My mind was pleasantly calm between the worry. My mind was calm because I made the decision to work in my studio everyday for twenty days and document it here.
