Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

Image
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…

Moody Paintings




This painting was done a couple three years ago. I began to try recognizable things - landscapes in this case. I was still copying my teacher at this point, using the micron pen to divide up my painting. It kinda reminds me of looking out a window. Or through wires. I love how the "trees" seem to evaporate into the sky. It is important to note that my edges are dirty on this piece. I did have masking tape on it, trying to keep it even, but failed utterly.


You can see that I have totally abandoned the "keep the edges nice and neat" thing. Someday art historians will look back at this and say I was in a confused period and my art echoed the chaos in my life.

Baloney, really, but I like how it looks.
