this piece is approximately 20x24". It is a photo of an angel statue in the snow, and the negative is scratched. The photo is mounted on board and that is attached to velvet covered foam. Hibernation of the hives was a celebration as they prepared the hives for winter. I can't find much information about it, but it seems significant. The birds reminded me of the snowbirds that flock our open yard and roads.
just learned about Sylvia Plath's poem "wintering" from the book "sweetness and light". it kind of relates to the topic : http://plagiarist.com/poetry/1462/
