First - 10 Artists/ 10 Pieces opened at the Hotchkiss School. I was so excited to see the whole show and that my installation piece, "Swallows," looked just like I had imagined it :) ! Even though I planned and planned, I didn't get to test it all together due to space constraints, so it's a relief to see it installed and working just like it should - no birds were tangled or down - whew!
It was also very nice that my parents were able to come to the opening! They got in and out during the brief thaw :).

- I think making the different size birds
to extend the space (like faux-perspective)
Now that the "Swallows," have officially flown from nest...it was time to break into my new roll of block material. Even though it arrived in late October, I had promised myself I would break into it until the swallows project was completely finished - it was time.

There was also an art-adventure to New York City to see the Michelangelo exhibition at the Met!

at the the Metropolitan Museum of Art
I also liked the non-Michelangelo pieces that were included in the exhibition for comparison and/or to show his designs executed by other artist. One of my favorite was this Hellenistic sleeping Hypnos - ahhhhh those wings!

It's been a very busy week! And outside of art there was snow, lots and lots of snow.
This made a particular Wonder-pup very happy.
