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…

Book Page Paintings

I've been using my old book again to make more bookshelf paintings. These are based on that stack of 200+ pictures I took at the library one day. I'm trying to work on my color composition - if you choose ONE color that you ADD to every other color, it ties them together a bit. As long as the primary color isn't too showy. 

This one turned out best colorwise. It looks like I limited the palette, too. I don't do that very often or well. :)

  Ta da! Another house painting! This one was in my stack of things to do. I drew it a long time ago and am only now getting around to painting it. The chimney looks like a devil's horn.

And here is the work in progress desk. That picture on the front of the books turned out great...


Are you selling these anywhere?

No. Think they'd sell?
