Ordinary to Impossible

What's happening in my studio this week??  It is difficult, mentally challenging, intricate and time consuming, all the things I seems to like about making art.  I am creating a wall size print by creating 8 different blocks that tesselate. The bees on one block connect to the next block and the block can be moved and changed to new positions and still create an entire piece. It is one of the hardest pieces I have ever done. I haven't proofed them all yet but will know very soon if my big idea worked. It is called "Ordinary to the Impossible" because what an indivdual bee does might be ordinary but together they do the impossible, just as many humans do the impossible when working together as a team.
