Welcome André Oliver!

I hadn't posted for a while, but for good reason: Christina and I are very happy and proud to announce the birth of our second son. Baby André Oliver was born on January 17th, healthy and handsome, 6 lb 10 oz and 20 inches, or 3 kg and 51 cm. Mommy is recovering very well, and Miguel Lucas is very proud to be a big brother! The two little brothers combine well to swell our days with tasks and our hearts with joy!

Happy 2012!

Happy New Year! We have had good Holidays, and these have been exciting times! We have been in the midst of preparations for the arrival of our baby boy, it should be any day now...

Meanwhile, this is the most recent page from my sketchbook, with a small study I did this morning. I used cobalt teal for the flaked painting of the trucks, and burnt sienna for the rust, and mineral violet for the roof, with touches of other colors here and there, to capture the light while trying to keep the shapes simple. That is, keeping things simple before life gets a little more complicated!
