First stage of underpainting underway.
I have submitted these paintings for the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship program for 2016. This organization awards grants between $7000 - $12,000 per artist selected, so I have my fingers crossed that I am chosen.
I have 19 paintings listed on 1stDibs
