Blah Painting for a Blah Day


Kind of a blah, muddled painting for a blah, muddled day. Just not feeling it today…any of it. Really tempted to go back to bed, but I already slept 11 hours or so. I can always tell when I’m super depressed because I sleep A LOT. The normal 8 hours of sleep becomes 12 hours a night. And even then, I want to sleep all day too, I just try not to allow myself. I always did like that joke about how being “super depressed” is just like being “regular depressed”, except that for “super depression” you wear a cape. I need a cape.

I suffer from a few severe mental illness and chronic pain conditions (Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, Ehlers Danlos, Degenerative Disc Disease, etc.), which greatly affects my life and makes me want to advocate for others going through similar things. Other interests of mine include reading, writing, drawing, watching cartoons and movies, collecting toys, hanging out with my family, and annoying my 3 cats.

  1. Hate those days where you can’t focus and have no energy–sorry you’re having them. I like the colors you used in your blah painting, though. On my monitor it looks like dots and smudges of pale robin’s egg blue, and green-gold shimmering against a purplish ground.

    1. Thanks for the compliment on my painting 🙂 In person it is more brownish, with white and yellow, which I felt fit the whole “blah” mood, but I can see how with certain tints it could look as you saw it.


  2. I’m the exact same way with sleep during depression. Have you tried the Alarm app Alarmy? It is the only thing that has helped me get out of bed. I even tried an automatic coffee pot in my room by my bed to no avail lol. I love your art.
