I’m spending the day at a hospital waiting room. My wife is undergoing a series of surgeries to restore sight to her left eye. Today’s round should be the last. When we began this, in November, she had no sight in that eye and the doctor offered no prognosis. We are now optimistic that full vision will be restored.
I expected to pass the time updating this blog, but I cannot seem to log onto the hospital wifi with the laptop. I’ve no problem with the phone linking up to wifi. (Though the phone signal is blocked.)
So here’s a quick update from my phone.
•. Welcome to all of the folks that have discovered 50 Little Birds via the March issue of Country Living. I’ve had a lot of emails and blog hits from these folks and have enjoyed the new interest. Yesterday was this blocks second busiest day with over 200 hits!
•. I just found out that my new skin-on-frame cardinal, “Cardinals are Big in Indiana” will hang at “Stick a Bird on It”, a show opening at Indianapolis’ Harrison Center for the Arts beginning March 2. Two other pieces, a murder of crowd and a box if chickens, will also be displayed through the end March.
•. I will be hanging, the “Bird Show” with Bruce Neckar at Bear’s Mill in Greenville, OH opening on May 25. The popular show was at Indianapolis’ Big Hat Books last spring.
•. Taking a cue from the metal wings on my skin-on-frame cardinal I’m experimenting with carved birds in flight with metal wings and tail. The prototype, a red-winged blackbird is pictured here.
