Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

Image
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…

Watercoloring Before Volcanoes



I'm here in Washington this week for a library conference and my room looks out at Mt. Ranier, an active, but "between eruptions" volcano (http://geology.com/usgs/rainier/). If it decides to blast, I have a great view!


I had a little time before my first meeting of the day to paint. This is the first time I've been so completely alone to do art in FOREVER. I miss my family, but I'm comforting myself with chocolate and a wonderful big bed all to myself...
