Sunday, April 11, 2010


As most of you know Sundays are my favorite day. Today is a totally free day, I get to do whatever my heart desires, which means a run this early afternoon, then a nap and painting
and bird watching, a little reading. I am also preparing for a trip to Santa Fe in a week. I still have last minute things to do to my portfolio. And I am getting ready to apply for the Pollock/Krasner grant.
I sent away for the application years ago, then forgot all about it. Lately I have been reminded and I am doing it! If you win, they basically give you money to live for a year and do your art, which is great, but also winning would put me on the map. Competition is great, but you can only try.
Have a most wonderful Sunday! What are you up to today? XOXO

oh annie, i have in person seen this very picture of your mountains. ♥

go go go go for it!! i am root-toot-tooting for you as of now and i will continue honking for the next month or more. i'm thinking the universe will hear me and you will be rightly rewarded. then i can brag that i had something to do with it....

it is 3:36 pm your time (i think) as i write this so your day is still young. are you reading? painting? blogging? cozying with the boys? whatever, enjoy!

Joey-Thanks. Yes, I understand, but we all end up where we need to be :-). xoxo
EOM-Ah, with children, how can that be? xoxo
Kj-Thank you! Keep rooting. I have just had dinner and now I am blogging (of course). xoxo
Nolly-Thank you. I will take all the good signs I can get :-).
Erin-Thank you. First I have to apply for the grant and that may take a few weeks, then it can take up to a year to know. I will keep you all posted. xoxo

Oh, that would be wonderful to win to persue your art. My daughter was born in Santa Fe, NM - In retrospect, I did love the climate, once I got used to the high altitute, only the winds bothered me howling around the Adobe houses we lived in. That sounds so sad to me.
Glad you had a relaxing day and hope the kitties are doing well.
Kind Regards,
Doris :-)

Good for you for putting your name in the hat. I wish I had done more of that in my life. I guess it's not too late to start!
