Studio, Topcat, and Handmade Book

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms in Blogland!

Thought I'd post some studio pics here today. I have some pics of our cat, TC (Topcat) in our "shared" studio space that are fun.

TC built his own space in the studio one day with some brown paper that came out of a box from some recently ordered art supplies. The paper went on the futon, and, as I continued unwrapping, TC made himself a house.

TC cozy in his little paper house.

Contemplating the universe. These photos were made November 2010.
TC has spotted a bird from his perch. May 2010. Notice the coats of fresh white paint on the walls!
And yes, I REALLY do have about half-dozen encaustic/mixed media works in progress, and will post as they are completed. Along with working in mys studio, I recently took a Japanese Stab Binding Bookmaking class taught at the Copper Queen Library by Jan Searle. It was lots of fun and here is my first book from the workshop!

Well, off to our Sunday drawing group now. Happy art adventures this week!
