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…

Graphite Paintings - Oh My Heart! - December 12, 2019

I finished this graphite painting and am very happy with the result! I fiddled with the shadows and like where the wanderings took me.

Tonight I listened to Patrick Stewart's A Christmas Carol. I've listened to it so many times I can practically quote it along with him. Dickens wrote such a beautiful story and my heart just grows each time I hear it!

I had an unexpectedly free evening tonight. It's nearly time to call it a night. Good things have been done today. Good things, indeed!
