Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

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…

Well, I did it! I've listed two folded books in my etsy shop. After a year and a half of waffling and wondering and some other "w" word I leaped in and did it. Yay me!

Back in art school, Wulf Barsch told our class that if we had a good product, it would sell. I really believe that I've worked on these folded books to the point that I've perfected (well...) the craft - I know what a "good" one looks like, I've learned how to fix mistakes, how to test patterns and how to ship the buggers, too.

Oh, our house is supposed to close on Aug. 3rd, if not sooner. I hope it's on July 31st. That's Harry Potter's birthday and I would like to share that happy day with him.

And yes, I know HP isn't real. But he's real enough for me.
