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…

Ferns, part 2 and fun surprises- December 4, 2019

Woohoo! Progress! 

I'm not sure why, but I'm tired by 7pm every night. Art must happen in spite of my weakness!

Today I got a new toy in the mail - actually,  TWO new toys. Liquid pencil and an optical tracer! There is no shame (for me) in tracing. I want to use it for my orthogon drawings.

Reading: Josie Lewis' The Color Mixing Companion 
Learning: still learning to mind my mouth. I'm coming along...

Working: I solved the problem for my presentation at Friday's all-staff meeting (I think that's what's been keeping me awake in the middle of the night) 

Watching: Captain Marvel on repeat (I love you Disney Plus)

Listening: see above

Playing: Roller Coaster Tycoon - so many nostalgic feelings!

Eating: tonight we had McDonald's because WE GOT THE CAR BACK (and at $500 less than estimated!)(so many blessings)
