Richmond artist Kortz says of creating new work while sheltering-in: “I love to paint and draw outdoor scenes because I have hiked in these places, and since I’m stuck here at home, it brings me back to when I was out in nature enjoying clean air, beautiful scenery, bird songs, and an occasional spotting of marmots, squirrels, and even bears… Every human being needs nature to nourish their soul.”
