Covid Eyes

portrait oil painting by Eoin Mac Lochlainn

Yes, it is Tuesday.  My regular blog post always comes out on Thursdays – but this is not my regular blog post.  This is Covid Eyes, a special art project for the period of the pandemic.

Now, I realise that there’s an awful lot of extra stuff going out on the internet these days so these posts of mine are going to be short.

In this strange period of isolation, social distancing and face masks, I have decided to concentrate on Eyes as a theme. My plan is to post a new image every Tuesday for the next while. This temporary project will be in addition to my regular Thursday blog post and it is grant aided by the Arts Council of Ireland.

So why the eyes?  The eyes tell so much about us – our compassion, our frustration, our fears  – the eyes also show that we are not that different from each other and, they remind us that we are all in this together.

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine.

So, see in the menu at the top, there’s a new heading: Covid Eyes  This is where you’ll see the project developing over the next few months.  As always, I look forward to receiving your feedback.  Here’s a direct link to the project.  

If you’re a regular subscriber to my blog, you’ll be receiving an email about it every Tuesday, in any case.  Slán go fóill, Eoin
