Studio Tour Sunday

  I made two new tile plates this week! I love when they are newly carved, leather hard clay.  This is my favorite state.  They look like chocolate. I wish they could stay this way!  I am really enjoying carving again. These quick little line studies are a really great way for me to express myself a bit, to work on some new imagery, and to play around with clay, which I haven't been doing enough of in the last few months.

That's the news from my studio. Here is what some of my creative friends have going on in their studios:
