In the second week after the holidays we have returned to routine with new energy and carry on with our group work I have reported of in December. Slowly the work areas of the team members at the four large tables get closer to each other. Now what counts is leveling height, style and color mixing, so that everything is nicely balanced.
The many curves in my plant part are quite tricky, but it’s still great fun. And in this work I notice again that I am gaining more routine. Nevertheless, taking care of andamenti, color mixing, an even mortar bed, clean work and more at the same time is quite demanding. So everyone is quite engaged to continue his part of the great puzzles bit by bit, every day. Slowly, the roman mosaic pavements get copied and I ‘m curious how the various works look when they are finished.
In terms of weather, Spilimbergo presents itself with continuous rain. So my new treasure, a mountain bike, probably will stay inside this weekend. But I can not wait for the days to get longer when later in the evening a lot of light leads to explore the area better. Until then, I have time for studying. Because yes, indeed: We do have exams in different theory subjects. And lots of them. Chemistry in German is already dull, in Italian it is a hard nut to crack for me. But I’ll give my best and look what I can achieve on the scale of 1 to 10.
