Name of Work: Bubble Blanket

Painted canvas / 144”dia

About the Work:
Bubble Blanket is a circular, 12-foot in diameter picnic blanket with a colorful, abstract painting design for all outdoors social distancing needs. When we started hearing the term 'social distancing' in the middle of intense quarantine, anything ‘social’ whatsoever began to sound amazing! However, I found that the experience of being outside was stressful because people would oftentimes come quite close. I thought of an iteration of a picnic blanket project that I did years and years ago, which offers a playful way to keep distance and still have an enjoyable experience outside.
