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…

Other Stuff

One thing I've been experimenting with in the 26 seconds of free time I have is shapes. It turns out that it's not so hard to do. I love graph paper - I'm learning about a whole 'nother world out there in designing! So far I can do a heart, a star and skulls. That about covers the basics, eh?

Snaggle-toothed skull. Scaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrry.

Working on some ideas for monograms. Some of the Reader Digests are too short to do more than three letters. This is one idea. I have a few kinks to work out, but here is an example of my initials. I think I'm going to try for a big letter in the middle (last name) and smaller letters on the sides for a real monogram.

And here is my son. Who needs stuffed animals for comfort when you have a billion little cars?
