Sorry to hear about your couch-situation, but i'm sure if you take it easy, everything will be ok.
Regarding your paintings: Use more saturated colors. It's like you're stuck in Brownville, all your paintings have that same brownish grouchy look. Are you afraid of colors? Are desatured greyish browns your favourite colors?
Don't be afraid of some bright tones, they can warm up things oh so nicely in a painting. Variating in the saturation of different colors will also make your paintings look less muddy.
Now, since you're still stuck in that sofa: moar paints!
