charcoal and pastel on scored and cut paper

As promised in yesterday's post, here is the piece that I have most recently finished. I'm continuing to work with the idea of mosaic remains and the de-construction and re-construction of my drawings. It's an interesting process and I am getting quicker at making the pieces, so...I believe It's time to go larger!

My new studio!


I've ended up having a much longer break from blogging than I'd planned or expected. You may remember that I moved house? and sorting out the new house has been very time consuming. It had been empty for two years and was in a very poor state so we have been attending to its needs since we moved in! :)...although I have somehow, in between jobs, managed to make a new piece of work which I will post tomorrow!  Today I want to show you my new space. I love my new studio..it's on the second floor of what was once a small brewery. We live in the middle section where there is a three story tower. My studio is on the top floor of that...so I now have a proper ivory tower! (For those who don't know, I used to refer to my last studio as my ivory tower as it was in the attic room). I've seen some glorious sunsets already as I have an east window, a west window and a south window, so plenty of light although my pics don't show that off too well.  
It's great to be posting again!
My best wishes to all!
