Quiet



This is the first of more prints to come that I'll be selling in my Etsy shop "AndolsekArt".  I love sketching.  I'm not able to paint (the kitchen is coming along) because the studio is 'the kitchen', literally.  And I've been thinking about doing this for sometime.  Btw, I have other prints available ($25.00/print) on my website under Digital.

So I bought this really cool poncho from this Etsy shop Ile Aiye and asked her for permission to use her photos as I just loved the kind of fashion statements she was making with her work.  Her work is gorgeous and fun!  I can't wait to get mine.  Go check out her work by clicking on her shop name above (in bold).  And please check out the first print "Quiet" while in Etsy.  Enjoy!

Kitchen's beginnings


We are in the throws of the beginnings... of the kitchen that is. That's Tony on the right, his boss Scott, SBC Development, Inc (a man of his word) and he are our lifesavers.  While Tony with one of his crew started the work on the kitchen, I asked if I could take a 'cheese' shot and he was obviously laughing - a very good way to start the day.  This has been a very looooonnnng process, but I think we've reached the peak, the turning point for it to finally come together and quickly at that - thanks Scott.  The studio is a crowded messy area as it 'is' the temporary kitchen.  I wanted to take more photos, but honestly after all of this time, I think I'll just let them do their thing.  I am so looking forward to cooking 'real' food that's good for us.  Our eating habits aren't the greatest at this point.  Pizza anyone!  I really appreciate everyone sticking with me all of this time.  Thanks lots!

Ready, Set, Go


This little girl was having a ball.  Her Mom was on the beach in her chair, lollygagging with 'her toys' while the little one frolicked like the joyful one that she was.  She was alone, but so not lonely.  Amusing herself with dancing, darting in and out of the waves to see if she would get caught (thus the title), and throwing water up in the air while twirling.  Oh the joy!  Completely delighted to be on the beach...

...as was I and especially glad I brought the good Canon camera.

Starting work on the kitchen this week.  Will try to get some picts of before and afters. We are jam packed in our small condo, but we still love it.  Should take a bit longer than a month for that part of the work to be completed.  The studio is now a make-shift kitchen with all kinds of bins on the patio.  Hmmm-m-m-m, maybe I shouldn't blog any of those picts after all.  Thank God for sketching and pochades.

Thanks for viewing my work!
