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.
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.
Patricia McMahon spotted this hand-painted shell on the Compo Beach seawall.
Jana Ireijo began painting a koala in response to the Australian brushfires. Now, in isolation, she found it soothing to work on again. You can see the shape of Australia on the nose; in the highlight of the eye is the state of Connecticut. “It’s a reminder to me of how connected we all are,” Jana says.

What wonderful works, and what a privilege to have this opportunity to view them. My favorite is of the mobile by Gail Bernson. Its exquisite delicacy and grace are nothing short of delightful.
These are great! Nice work, y’all.
These all could be collected and made into a wonderful book.
These all look fantastic.
I really love Amy’s lego fire scene
Someday, famous artists. Westport’s still got it.
