Lockdown has been very hard. Our street was so quiet and days have passed without seeing anyone. I came up with the idea of a portrait service to draw my neighbours and have had at least 10 minutes to chat to each. Setting up my daily stall after school has been great, I finally could talk to many neighbours and was able to make a quick drawing. Everyone engaged in a chat and I was able to express the faces of my street. Everyone was happy and more importantly, I made new friends and have talked to people I never met. My neighbours were able to choose the colours representing them best. I am very proud to have such a great street!
