Whimsy at a distance

"Original Social Distancing," 5 x 7  watercolor, 140 lb Fabriano Artistico cold press paper
New experiences birth new ideas, needs, which then begat new words, phrases.
Such it is with "social distancing," as we enter a new month of pandemic pandemonium.
But it occurred to me that "social distancing" isn't anything new, especially if you have lived in a rural area near local livestock, or even corporate pig farms, for instance. You don't want to live downwind, if you can help it.
Thus today's bit of whimsy in watercolor. Think about it.
