What do I do today?

Mollie Russell, 20

I painted this portrait of my mother during lockdown. She is usually not at home much due to work, which came to a sudden halt in March 2020. Like many others, she was suddenly spending every day in her home, waiting for some change in the situation and wandering aimlessly around the house in the meantime. I wanted to capture the idleness and tedium that she felt.
