 I'm here in Florida. I wish I could say warm and sunny Florida, but it has been a cool and cloudy January that is continuing into February. Looking at the weather in the rest of the country, I guess I shouldn't complain. We have no extreme rain, no flooding, no bitter cold and no snow storms.

I celebrated my birthday here, twice! The first one on last Friday with a group of friends. We went to a fabulous museum exhibit at the Baker Museum in Naples. Then out to lunch, of course.

 Dinner at another great restaurant last night. My cup runneth over!

Here are some pictures from the exhibit. the artist is Tamara Kostianovsky, who makes her art from recycled clothing. I am hoping to try some of her techniques in a future piece.

Several pieces were free-standing , such as this and the next one.

Some pieces were hung on the wall.

This is a technique I hope to try when i am back in CT with all of my supples. This looks like cotton T-shirt material, cut into strips. I know that it will roll on itself when cut. The large stand-alone pieces used the same technique. I'm not sure what was underneath.

This whole section was called Abattoir. The artist lives in Argentina, known for its meat. When I was there several years ago I ate more meat than I had previously eaten in probably five years.
There were several of these life size carcasses, showing the inside and the outside. 

This was a decent led tour and our docent was amazing. 

That's it for now. I'll write again when I have something worthwhile.
