Okay, so I just submitted for an artist residency. Please cross your fingers and toes that it might lead to getting it. Even if it doesn't come through, it always turns out to be a good process to look at my work with a fresh perspective. I always feel like the tweaks to my artist statement or project goals make doing the application process worth it, even if I don't get it. ....but still, keep you fingers crossed because I'd really like to be able to do what I proposed with the opportunity that this residency will offer.
