Where did the "New Normal" started?

As I was getting around on my daily activities, my cellphone informed me of a notification. It was my wife sending me a selfie. She was wearing a facemask. I used to see all her facial features before and now something had changed. I loved the excitement her face expressed through a picture, but I felt the separation of having her face covered, hidden from me. As a natural reaction, I craved to paint that image. From that picture, a painting was born. That first painting, gave me the idea to start this New Normal series.

It all started when my wife sent me a selfie on a private message.
