Well, that's the goal anyway. And the hope. And the focus of this blog for the next 4 months. "Woah, 4 months - that's a bit excessive" you say? No doubt I should have been focusing on it many months ago; maybe I would be feeling a bit more prepared and confident about my applications. Shoulda, woulda, coulda, etc etc, story of my life. So here we are, September 3rd. 3 paintings done, 17 to go. Applications in by December 31st. Yes, I'm aware this means 17 paintings in less than 4 months. With collecting my CV, perfecting my artist statement, and figuring our where I'm even applying...well, it's all a bit overwhelming.
I've done what any anxiety-ridden person would do and broke it down: 4 paintings a month; 1 painting a week. Seems ridiculous with the full time job, friends, family and using oil paints. But, no matter, I will try. This blog will keep me accountable and you all (whoever you are -- Mom? Just you?) can watch me unravel and hopefully succeed.
Check back frequently for updates, there will be updates, and I'll see you in person in 2013!
