Lovely Article and Press!!

A very (very!) exciting week in Artlandia!

First, a lovely article by Chelsea Campbell about my recent work at Women''s Studio Workshop:
 "The In-Between Space: Tatiana Klacsmann in the Studio," :

Very cool! So well-written and really getting to the heart of my art-mission in a clear way.

In the studio, I (finally!) finished the final wing block! (!!!)

I did a similar thing to last week, where I printed the block, which is 12 x 18" on 3 sheets of paper, then scanned them individually and cut and pasted them back together digitally.

the 3 hand printed 8.5 x 11" sheets from a single 12 x 18" block

digitally reassembled - think I'm getting better at putting them back together seamlessly on the computer - thumbs up!
I can't believe the human-scale wing may actually be complete and ready to print(!) The timing is perfect because (drumroll....) look what's joined the studio!(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I can't believe she's truly mine (heart!) - game-changer/life-changer - going all-in now! :D 
This is so exciting that words sort of fail me. My kind friend helped assemble and level her, and she's all ready to go this week (though still looking for the right name - hmmmmm.)

 In other art news, I got to decorate a bowl for the upcoming Chili Bowl Fiesta at Women's Studio Workshop . It was a wonderful day with friends, and it makes me happy to think I might be helping through art! 


 :) - Feb. 27th, 2 - 7 pm, admission is free, and this and many other beautiful bowls will be for sale to help support the studio :)

Just because the wing is (*possibly, maybe*)
complete, doesn't mean I'm done carving
(though maybe a small break from feathers
 for a while ;) )
  - already started the next block.
Can you guess what it is? 

This is kind of random, but the color of the snow
was so intensely indigo that I felt I needed to take
and share an un-color-manipulated picture:
