#artistsupportpledgechs

I am currently participating in the Instagram campaign#artistsupportpledge and the local #artistsupportpledgechs.  I’ve been posting works for up to $200, and once I reach $1000 in sales, I pledge to buy $200 worth of work from a participating artist.  Anyone can buy my work.  Many artists have lost their income because of COVID19.  Many gallery openings, classes and art shows have been cancelled, leaving artists with no resources aside from the internet to sell work.  I have posted 10 paintings on paper, all under $200, and will continue to post through the duration of the campaign.

The pieces for sale through #artistsupport pledge are found on Instagram at lindadeliafineart, or any art can be purchased through my website: lindadelia.com.

Social Distance

On April 23, 2020, my painting, Social Distance, was included in an article in the Post & Courier about all kinds of artists making art during COVID19 Quarantine.  I painted this intentionally to hold a memory of this weird time in my life.  The colors were painted on first, representing the different people with different feelings and thoughts about the pandemic.  The white paths were painted over the color to create the distance we were required to put between ourselves and our loved ones.
