In this colored pencil artwork, “Hello in There,” I am telling very much a story of 2020 and Covid-19, as well as loss. The son, who is himself a senior adult, visits his elderly mother through a window. The assisted living centers and nursing homes often did not allow indoor visits during Covid-19. They are not only physically separated, but the mother is a victim of Alzheimers. The mother is clutching a baby doll for comfort – perhaps she’s remembering her own past as a young mother, but she may not remember her own son.
