Finishing the Commission
My first major commission is finished and delivered! The buyer loved it!! When she unwrapped the covering around it we danced in joy! Now for the next step.
I am applying to be on the teaching artist roster for Washington State Arts Commission. The application form includes 7 narrative questions, plus a short bio, a lesson plan, and a write-up about the 10 sample art pieces I'm submitting photos of. Wow! It pulls in all of my training and experience as a teacher and a good deal of my work as an artist. A special challenge was condensing the important experiences of my long adventurous life into 125 words! Thank goodness for friends who helped me think this through and who edited/critiqued my writing.
