...and about that shop

Hoboken 4 by elisa ann lindstrom


On July 15th, I will be closing my Etsy shop: elisaann. This shop sells my sketches, drawings, clips, mugs, and tote bags. It sounds like sad news especially since I opened the shop up in 2007 and it has given me so many opportunities. But truth be told, it's good news. You can still get my sketches and clips from Paperish MessPS Yoga is now selling my tote bags (see this post for more info). The other reason this is a good move is that now I can spend a lot more time on my landscapes and less time tending shop. 

July 15th is coming up quick so if there is something you are interested in, now is the time to purchase it.

cool news about those totes:

I am excited to say that PS Yoga at 7169 W. Grand Avenue in Chicago is now exclusively selling 4 of my totes: ommm, just breathe, live simply and stop think breathe begin. I've also found a stronger, thick cotton canvas for the bag and love how durable this collection is. I am very excited to partner up with this studio. If you are in town, stop by their gift shop, check them out and maybe take a yoga class. If you are not in Chicago, contact them directly to purchase the totes.

From the studio: and update on painting no. 2

The 2nd landscape for my challenge is almost complete. The pinks and yellows from the sunset are finally coming together. As you can see from the image below, I've sketched out the lighthouse. Now I just need to work on the details of the land area.

From the studio: an update on the challenge

copyright elisa ann lindstrom

The 2nd painting for the challenge is from a trip I took to Cape Cod a number of years ago. The original photo was taken from a boat at sunset. As you can see, I am still in the beginning stages of the piece. Expect to see pinks and yellows on this one. Stay tuned, I'll show more soon.
