With travel not happening at this time, I am grateful for wonderful photo references to paint from. I do find that painting from these brings back lovely memories and really gives me the sensation of being there again. Such a nice reprieve from the restrictions of our current world.
I am sure many artists feel that way. And for others, you travel with books, movies, or even music. (I hear you old hippies - blasting that 60's music. Enjoy!) Ways of getting away when actually getting away has become difficult or impossible.
It is so good to have these worthwhile escapes. Going through a time like this, the enormous value of all of the arts is becoming clear to everyone!
