Lockdown Bookshelf Puzzle
This 1m x 1m painting was created during lockdown as an homage to early Zoom television interview backgrounds, before people got savvy about making the right impression. My favourite was a man with very little hair who had a shelf with a pot plant on it that looked as though he was wearing it at a jaunty angle; another was someone's gin collection proudly displayed behind him. The books are mostly pandemic themed and puns. I tried to make the background as embarrassing as possible and still use it for Zoom calls.
