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…

Flowers Flowers Everywhere

More of the evening watercolors I do while my son is dipping his head into the kiddie pool "changing his hairdo". I also fend off cats (we have 16) who drink my paint water. Maybe it will sterilize them ...

This one is a work in progress. I'm going to add a few more layers of colors. I tried putting a flower everywhere there was an "o" to give it a really random feel. I like the composition.

This one isn't my favorite drawing-wise, but I'm happy with the composition and the contrast.

Whoa 16 cats,I hope they are outdoor cats. We have 2 indoor cats and it is all I can do to keep up with the litter box! I love all the pics but I am partial to the 2nd one where you put flowers on all the "O". It's like making a quilt and just picking random squares out of a paper bag.
