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…

Organization pt. 1- December 26, 2019

Today feels like the actual first day of my vacation because is the first day with NO PLANS. 
I only had one thing I wanted to accomplish today - label my watercolors.

It's  hard to admit,  but I've been hesitant to use my label maker for months. To make a long story short, I figured out how to use it and got cracking. 

Three movies later (the only unit of time while on vacation) I finished! 

I'm a sucker for beautiful organization. These are labeled ON the pan and underneath in the well. That way, I can take out pans for each painting and make more room. I love my Robax palette,  but it's big. 

Tomorrow I have two options: clean my art room (it's turned into a "pile it" room) or start my newest watercolor class.

Luckily I don't have to make a decision until tomorrow.  I'm on vacation!
