Here is one of my studio shots from today featuring some newer drawings made in the past several weeks.

I love my windows bringing in natural light.

Happy Sunday.

Hey Friends,

I am spending most of my Sunday in the studio (hopefully) and then I'll be watching the Superbowl.

Currently, I am working on a copper plate for an etching and listening to the movie "Henry Poole is Here" on Netflix (I've seen it numerous times actually).

Here are some sketches I've been meaning to upload to my blog (ink/pencil on rives heavyweight paper in handmade books with handmade paper covers)

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

Blue Bombs

I added another pair of these Turquoise Howlite earrings for my etsy

Today I did something really stupid..

So, Today I did something really dumb and I couldn't stop laughing about it.

I have a studio in a complex with seven other artists (we're all grad students working on our Masters in Fine Arts). The complex is shaped like a horseshoe and there are two doors that lock from the outside. Once you get into the complex, there are 8 individual studios...and each had it's own lock (combination or padlock). Well...

I was running downstairs to the printmaking studio to grab something and without thinking, I LOCKED my KEYS inside my studio.
CRAP. On my keys..keys to other rooms in the building, my car, my house, my mailbox.

I decided I would grab a tall ladder and climb over the one wall...
I landed fine jumping over (but I wouldn't recommend this)

I realized this when I jumped over to get my keys and then remembered "THE LOCK IS LOCKED ON THE OUTSIDE"

I just started laughing.
Why? My Studio neighbors are usually around on various times on Wednesday and this was about 1:30 in the afternoon, so usually the majority of us are in our studios in the complex.

My studio neighbor was making frames all day and literally came back into the complex and unlocked my studio for me with me throwing over my keys.

I laughed about it all afternoon.

Have you ever done something so silly??
