I may barf from excitement...

It takes a lot to render me speechless. But my constant babble has been ceased due to a most amazing opportunity…I was awarded an artist residency! I put in countless hours making and mailing proposals packets to programs around the country and have received a healthy stack of “thank you but no” letters in reply. Until yesterday!

I will spend the month of April at the Ucross Foundation located in Northern Wyoming. This little piece of heaven on earth is situated on a 20,000 acre working cattle ranch. It gives the amazing gift of time to artists, composers, and writers. I am beyond excited and extremely grateful for this opportunity. Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou…….
