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…

On the Bright Side - January 7, 2020

I went to the dentist today for what I thought was a fifteen minute prep procedure.

Nearly two hours later I walked out, mouth numb and a little shell-shocked at what I'd just had to go through. I'm grateful I still have teeth!

It's time for a bit of self-care now - the hot shower is done and I'm ready to hop into bed with a good book and a little snack (something soft because, ow).

I did this piece yesterday, the Organic Shapes portion of my Laura Horn art class Watercolor Explorations. I'm learning so much!
