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…

Stamp Hearts

My Dad had several books of stamps from when he was a kid. I checked with a REAL stamp collector and found they weren't worth anything. HURRAY FOR ME!

I made hearts on handmade paper I made from scratch in college. It's the perfect background for the colors. There's still something missing from the hearts but I haven't figured it out yet.

And speaking of unfinished works, I piled together all of my watercolors-in-progress:

The thing with my watercolors is that they require so many layers which need to dry between applications. And they pile up because I forget about them (and don't keep them all in the same place!). I cleaned up my art room so everything has a place for now. Can't wait to see what happens with the hearts and watercolors!


Oh my, the hearts are fabulous! Had to Pin them!

I like these. It's a neat way of keeping the stamps without stuffing them into books.
A very original and creative idea. Beautiful and neat works.
