This week I'm trying to get a whole bunch of paint related things completed for a grant that I am applying for. The Grant is for a five week stay at a painters dream location and I cant say where because one of the stipulations of the grant is that I can't advertise it. With the deadline approaching fast I find myself in a sink or swim situation. Writing of artist statement. why I deserve this grant, quality photos of work on a CD in certain size and format. (I'm not even sure what a format is) also bother somebody for a recommendation letter. Luckily I have had some much needed help from a friend with writing critique and great advice in general on all points related. (Thank You CP) One of the things I have found myself sinking with since I started this blog has been my photo skills, but now (because I have to) I am really gonna try to focus on photographing my work properly or at least learning how..?. So please if you have been reading my blog for awhile or have looked back at older posts, let me hear you opinion on the photo work going forward from here. As for the Grant, I will let you know here if get it or not, Wish me luck! Quote: "Give your viewers something more than decoration. Give them something that will raise their level of vision.
