How to Move a Swan!

The final days of “swanning” were long and arduous, day became night and night became day, I was losing sight of reality, I wondered if there was life outside my shed!

I emerged hungry and tired, in need of refreshment…

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

A  name has chosen by my sponsor – “Odile” – The Black Swan from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. At first I thought the name was inappropriate as she isn’t wholly a black swan, but when jogging my memory about the story of Swan Lake, I realised that it was a really good name. Odile is the evil twin of the white swan “Odette” and during the ballet she disguises herself as her sister. It’s as if my swan Odile is morphing into Odette!

Here are some pictures of Odile in my garden:

Here’s a video I made earlier called “How to Move a Swan!”

Come back soon when I post some more photos of her in Wells Market Square.

    1. Traumatised I think, I never want to see a swan again! No, seriously though I am pretty chuffed with it!

  3. That is a really gorgeous piece of work Kate! Many congratulations. When can we all see it for real?

    1. Thanks Prue. The launch date is Monday 28th May, when the Swans of Wells team will start to install them and they should all be in place in time to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend on 2nd & 3rd June.

  4. Cant wait to watch the video of the launch Kate-you are one talented and spiritual lady-best wishes to you and your friends and family.

    1. Thanks Sandie, that’s very sweet of you! Best wishes to you too x
