'Geraniums'


Buy it at AndolsekArt on Etsy!

Geraniums are such a hardy flower and really grow quite prolific here in Cali.  They remind me of Europe with their lovely windows adorned with boxes full of welcoming flowers.  There are some very old ones here in Ventura Harbor.  I couldn't believe how big they are with thick stalks.  So if you're looking for a plant that can give you an easy time of it, this might be just the one.

'Baby Bunny'

This sweet delightful stuffed baby bunny is so sweet and soft and cuddly, it's difficult to stop hugging. I have one more smaller bunny that I will more than likely ask to pose for me sometime down the road. I'll bet I get a yes...  Cuteness!

On the Lookout


Buy it AndolsekArt on Etsy!


The stance of this Chickadee says it all, definitely on the lookout.  Only she knows for what though.  

I just read some interesting facts about Starlings and thought I'd share.   I was always curious about why they they came together in huge groups and flying in perfect unison.  Apparently it has to do with them becoming larger than the predator they were alerted to by just even one Starling and then all come together to ward off the bad guy.  So amazing!

The Color Orange

A fun time was had with this lazy clementine. Just wouldn't cooperate, needed to be propped up. This is what happens when you won't stop fidgeting. This is a 'still life' after all. Humor! 😊

...injured but not out

So late Saturday night I took quite a gymnastic fall and unfortunately didn't land on my feet, but arms.  The emergency doctor tells me it's a tear to the right rotator cuff. Of course, I happen to be right-handed.  I don't usually blog about personal things like this.  I'd rather weather it out, but this might take sometime so thought I'd mention it.

In the meantime, after I get the ok from doctor (IF I can actually get into an Orthopedic dr that is) and start physical therapy, I'm going to try to become more ambidextrous, lol.  So so appreciate my limbs.  One never knows how this could end...  It's almost a for sure guarantee for looser work right.

This was great fun to paint in an abstracted manner as I was feeling pretty playful looking at these magnificent happy flowers. 
They made me do it!
