During this time of adversity because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, people from all walks of life have different ways to cope. Some watch films on Netflix while some read books that are part of their backlogs. Jean Jones, however, uses her quarantine time the best way she knows how.
This is through drawing, and one of her masterpieces is an artwork of a dog. Jean is an art teacher at a local school in Utah, and she saw the lockdown as an opportunity to create a work she would be proud of later on. Jean used different colors of chalks to draw her masterpiece of a dog. According to Jean, the idea came from an old friend.
That old friend, Jean said, requested her to draw a pooch. Incidentally, Jean also likes dogs, so she took to heart the suggestion of her friend. Since she wants to make the project perfect, Jean made a simple outline of the drawing using white and gray chalks.
While at first, it did not look like a dog, the drawing became more apparent when Jean put some details and added more chalk colors to it. Jean documented every step of the process so that she has something to watch later on. She said the documentation part is for her perusal, a reminder that she did something during the lockdown.
When Jean finished the artwork, it did not look like it created using chalk. According to Jean’s neighbors, the word amazing is an understatement to describe Jean’s work of art. For them, it was a masterpiece that bespeaks of the author’s craftsmanship. Of course, Jean took to heart what her neighbors said of her artwork. For her, it gives her inspiration as well as the drive to create more artwork moving forward.
