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 Mosaic

I got an idea yesterday to do a whole picture with stamps. When you look at it in person, all the colors of the picture are pretty much the same value. It made it hard to see so I put the white strips of paper (cut out by perforation like a stamp) around the main shapes.

Oh, then I used some of my favorite phrases from a book to put around the entire picture as a border.

Purty! Where did you get all the stamps?

Melanie - they are from Dad's old stamp albums... worthless to collectors, priceless to me!
