Project: eXtremesurf Office

The office after renovation!

My husband and I decided that the time had come to purchase a building for his business office, we had been looking for quite a while when we discussed a cute 2 storey white sided building located on a corner in town. It just felt right and we could see the potential behind every wallpapered wall. All it needed was fresh paint, perhaps new flooring and a powder room on the main level for now; we could update the rest later so we wouldn’t strain the budget. But as the project unfolded, we quickly decided to skip the 10 year plan and just do it all now to get it over with. Yes, a complete gut, my heart leaped! The office was stripped back to studs and the fresh palette emerged. Here is a before picture of the Inkerman Office: Read more

Downton Abbey Paintings

Downton Abbey Painting Sybil Eva Robertson

In September I began a few watercolor paintings of the Downton Abbey cast members. It is hard to believe that the season three finale airs tonight! Sybil was such a strong character, she was very forward thinking and compassionate, and one of my favorite people from upstairs.

Enchilladas

Enchilladas

We used to have taco night at least once a week when I was growing up- this could possibly stem from the fact that both of my parents were born and raised in Mexico. I have a deep appreciation for Mexican food- an appreciation that runs deeper than the supreme fries you can get at the food court. Any combo with squeeze cheese does not constitute as a true Mexican feast! Here is my mom’s recipe for Enchilladas, make them tonight!
