Are you awake at 5 a.m.?

This week I'm participating in a virtual artists' residency organized by Cel del Nord in Spain. Each day we have a morning call. It's at 10 a.m. for the organizer and most people in Europe. Not for me. It's 5 a.m. EDT. I'm not a morning person, yet, I've gotten up each morning since Sunday to join the 5 a.m. call. Then I've stayed up to work until noon when we have the "evening" call.

My goal: Make one assemblage a day. Yesterday, I didn't complete my piece. That's okay. I got it started and will finish it later. Here's the work I've accomplished so far. The two bottom pieces are not complete.
