Streetcar and a Grant!

Below is a detail shot from the painting.

Got word yesterday that I've been awarded a grant through the Kentucky Arts Council. It's a Individual Artist Professional Development Grant to be used for workshops and other things. Since I'll be attending a Ken Auster workshop in less than two weeks I already had the fiscal end of the event worked out. That made it all the more easy to fill out the necessary paperwork/application with an itemized list. It was also a juried award, which means the Panel first, and then the Board, had to approve of my work samples, which makes me feel good.

Congratulations Bill. Being an artist doesn't preclude us from having to pursue the business end of things either.

That's wonderful.
As is this painting.

Workshops are like continuing ed for things we choose.

I agree Bonnie. I wish I could go to lots of workshops, but my location doesn't offer many opportunities nearby.
