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…

Merry Christmas!- December 25, 2019

This year the decorations were minimal but festive. I love this little pink tree we bought years ago at Walmart. It's still going strong. I keep the little paper stars on it when I pack it up every year. It saves time.

I try to get a new decoration each year that encapsulates one of the high points of the year. This time I picked a Captain Marvel/Iron Man (not shown) ornament. I love that movie.

There's so much I want to change in the upcoming year. As I lay in bed, I'm thinking how my art and my home and my heart can improve...
