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…

Working Magic

And that's how you put the magic in Rhymes With Magic.

All the photographs have been taken (yay for an unexpected day at home with a sick kid) and edited. I put the embellishments on several of the butterflies after I photographed them in their plain paper state. The experiments were a mixed bag of success. The glitter turned out great, but the inking projects turned out a bit more iffy. I'll work on them more later. You can't ruin something worse is my motto!

Tomorrow is the Fourth of July so I'll either be in Los Angeles visiting The Getty museum or at home working on this again because of the kid still being sick. Either way, it's going to be a great day!
