Description: A modern Saint Cecilia, patron saint of musicians. A concert cellist emasculated by the Covid Pandemic unable to play, looks down at the viewer. The folded arms, not in resignation but defiance and resilience, looking forward to the resumption of and inevitable explosion of performing arts. A lockdown painting to capture the zietgeist.
