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…

Quirks - January 28, 2020

Fun fact about my art practice: hot water.

There is steam rising from this container of water. Some time back, I started using the hottest water I could get from the tap and now it doesn't feel right unless I have it each time I rinse out and refill my water. 


Tonight I found two colors that don't play well together:  quinacridone coral and cobalt turquoise (both Daniel Smith). 

I just can't shake this exhaustion, so it's off to bed I go. And it's only 10:30pm. (snort)
