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…

Sneak Peek of Free Form Shape Tutorial

I will be teaching people how to turn a simple drawing into...

... a simply beautiful folded book.

And that's just the first part. There's more!

My next goal is to get section 2 finished.

Did you know that sitting in a hard chair for two days working on a tutorial can do terrible things to your back? If I didn't have to go to work today, I might consider taking some Vicodin and laying down for a while... :)

Cant wait for this tutorial...
I've always wondered how to fold that heart shape. Very excited about the tutorial, looking forward to it and trying my hand at it. Thank you for making this tutorial. I hope your back feels better after a rest.

I gotta share a secret with you, Heather... try sitting on an exercise ball while working on the computer. Your back will thank you! (well, let me say it works for me; hopefully it will be a help for you too)
