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…

Skull in Chains

So... I finished the filet crochet of the skull and attached it to the book by chains. It's so metaphorical, isn't it?

It still takes me a long time to crochet the design and I'm not sure I have the patience to do it for larger books. Still, I don't want to give up on the idea. I love the mixture of the thread and the paper. Hmm... we'll see.

Yes, my first attempt at integrating the art with the book. Hmmm...
