Message from The Artist: I made this piece while isolated in my room. I was sad and lonely because I was quarantined. I was worried that I could get sick and spread it to my family. This picture represents feeling trapped. I never paint with orange and yellow but I wanted to make this piece feel strange and out of place, outside of my normal comfort zone. This picture represents how I was feeling. The piece captures how it feels to be lonely and isolated.
