Bird Series Finds a New Nest

This little bird series has found a nice home at the very prestigious Mayo Clinic in Rochester. It will join the amazing collection already there. I'm honored to have my work included. I went yesterday to drop off the mosaics and I was lucky to be treated to a personal tour of some of the art of the Gonda Building. Minnesota artist Michael Sweere has created some incredible pieces that I was lucky enough to see. Oh, and then there are other artists, like Dale Chihuly, but it's hard to measure up to Mike! ;) The art there is incredible. I'm going to go back when I have the whole day to see more!

Thanks, Laura! I saw my first bluebird of the season three days ago (they've come back to their birdhouse!!), and just moments ago I spotted my first robin. Spring is here!
