This is one of my pieces. It represents not only things that are deeply sentimental to me but also my foundation, my roots, and I need to find a way to get back to them before I am lost forever. Since moving to New York I have been thrown into the daily grind of life and work and just barely making enough money to be be able to stay here. This is what I miss though and this will always feel like my calling. I currently lack the equipment, materials and funds to be making pieces like this again but desperately want to continue this journey where I left off. Any artist friends have suggestions on grants or anything that could be applied for or ideas to help to get me back up and running? Suggestions greatly appreciated.
