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…


This painting is 6x10 in., 4 times bigger than my normal size of 5x3 in. It was this size to accommodate the proportion of the two stamp-sized houses. Now I've gotten completely lost in that huge background sky part and am not sure if I'm going to be able to save it. THERE IS TOO MUCH GOING ON!! Maybe I can put a clear, clean flat wash over it to pull it together and just start doing the houses. See if that keeps it from being totally whack. :(

If not, I might tear it apart for parts.
