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…

New Work

Question: How in the WORLD should I name these things? So many titles of art are pretentious. So many titles *I* come up with are pretentious! How about numbers? Dates? 

I don't want to be pretentious. I want to be regular-people like.  And the pictures aren't turning out well. It's CLOUDY outside. Son! Go get your jacket! After all, it's still JUNE in Bakersfield! Weird.

Beautiful! You know, you could always name them after your favorite BOOKS, authors or other literary figures. I mean considering you are a librarian. :) Either that or name them after sections of the Dewey Decimal System. :P

I like the idea of naming them after books , perhaps the actual book you used with abidged or folded added . If you use the same book for different patterns , wouldn't they then be editions?

This one, to me, has a distinct "Metropolis" (the silent movie) feel!

Okay call me crazy but I think it should be named "Venus Flytrap". The two distinct shapes remind me of a mouth opening and closing.
