Every Saturday, we share readers’ artwork. Professional, amateur, old, young — send us your painting, collage, sketch, photo, sculpture, chalkwork, cartoon, whatever.
The only rule is it must be inspired by, reflective of, or otherwise related to the times we’re going through. We’re all experiencing tons of emotions, and art is a wonderful way to express (and share) them. Email your submission to email@example.com.
Here is today’s gallery.
PS: Keep the submissions coming. If yours is not posted yet, be patient. There will be more next Saturday. And, unfortunately, for some time to come.
Nell Waters Bernegger took this Winslow Park photo last summer. She calls it “the gateway to hope.”
Susan Joy Miller explains, “These are Tai chi moves I miss doing as we shelter in place. Fair Lady works her shuttle, hands moving like clouds, white crane spreads its wings, sweep the lotus with a kick, repulse the monkey and snake creeps down.”
“Monet Moment on the Saugatuck” (Tom Kretsch)
“Still Life with Sanitizer” (JoAnn Davidson, former Westport teacher, age 89)
“Social Isolation is Getting Old” (Beth DeVoll, who notes that the Kewpie Doll was created by Westport’s own Rose O’Neill in the early 1900s).
This represents Hugo Arber’s full house, and all the card games his family is playing. He’s a 3rd grader at Coleytown Elementary School — and today is his 9th birthday!
“Anxiety” (Lawrence Gordon)
The Mannino kids’ chalk art message.
East 1st Street, New York City (Susan Thomsen)
“Is baking art?” asks Amy Saperstein. “Some meringues and Oreo chocolate chip cookies were made completely independently by Myla Saperstein, age 11, but eaten by all the Sapersteins.” The “06880” answer: This is GREAT art!
Irene Mastriocovo says, “My yard is now my go-to for walks. I’m enjoying the little things in life, like the birth of spring. The budding plants and flowers bring hope.”

Dan: Tried to send you a painting from Joyce, but it got kicked back. I don’t have an asterisk on my IPad, only a star. Elliott
