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…

Hearts for your Sweetheart

 I finished the big heart patterns! Yay! I have had a wonderfully supportive husband the past couple of days, letting me work like a maniac finishing this up. I now have a (more or less) permanent photo setup IN MY BATHROOM of all places. The light through my window in the morning is just heavenly...

Anyway, the hearts are 6" tall (that's 15 cm for all you not stuck in Imperial measurement systems) and can be enlarged a bit if you like. I love how they turned out. 

You can use the same pattern two ways to give you variations. This is the open-centered one. Guess what you can do with it? 

Ta-da! Potpourri basket!
