A step at a time

A full year into the pandemic. Lockdown, social distancing, work and study from home, even maybe a curfew. Our discipline and patience are definitely being tested. What to do? Let the recent record snowfall (50 cm) in Madrid inspire us to go outside and draw with our feet in the snow or in the sand, one step at a time. It is good exercise and no art supply is required (a camera to preserve and share ephemeral art is optional).

You can even follow the foot steps of famous engineer-artist Simon Beck and do mathematics at the same time. Start with a small simple geometrical form and challenge yourself to go big and find proper location for you. Reflect on how you feel about your image fading away and how long it lasts. The pandemic will not last. How we will remember it is on us.
