Robin Arnitz

There’s a podcast called Artist/Mother that I listen to on occasion. They had a call for entries called “Painting at Night.” I thought this name really fit. It’s even more difficult for mothers during Covid. “Painting at Night” might now be called “Painting During a Nap, if I’m Lucky!” Balancing work and no childcare is a tough task. However, we still find joy in being able to spend more time with our kids. I try to capture that exhaustion through a bit of dark humor. Hopefully this helps others know they aren’t alone with their struggles during this time
