During the pandemic, I’ve been out walking on streets of houses surrounding the neighbourhood that I live in. I always take solace from the trees and gardens I see. But I’ve been surprised at how the look of some of the houses improves my sense of well-being. In particular, I often love looking at the space between houses to see the backs of houses and trees on more distant streets. This is new to me and I sometimes feel that I’ve been transported back to scenes that I found beautiful in childhood but cannot now fully recall. Other than that, I have not found words to describe the feelings. Thankfully, there is also drawing as a way to express things beyond words. The scene in this scratchboard drawing arises from these feelings.
