Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

Image
To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

Five Minute Watercolors


After working all day and then coming home to a house full of MORE stuff to do and worry about, I've been having trouble relaxing. Brian suggested I find something that I enjoy doing that could be done in 5-minute increments - meaning that he understands that I have little more than 5 minutes at a time to call my own. So I came up with my little watercolors.


I've always liked watercolor and, for some reason, only work small. Here is a sample of what I've been up to lately:

i love it
These are wonderful! I'm a fan of the tiny painting, myself. Love the idea of a 5-minute project, kind of like doing gesture drawings in college. Kudos, too, on the hubby who "gets" that you only get 5 minutes at a time, and encourages you to use that time creatively, that's terrific! :D

Thanks Lisa for giving me perspective about the hubby. At first I was kinda piqued that he thought it was OKAY that I only had 5 minutes!
