Welcome to this week’s
In times like these, I think back to all the wonderful artists who created in times of crisis or suffering and see what beauty and inspiration they brought to all of us. Let’s add our own mark on history with what we create during this time.
Our heartfelt thanks to those of you who have sent in images of your art – please keep doing so!
