Artist Residency in Maine

Over the past year I've applied for several artist residencies....hoping in a sort of fantasy like way that I might be selected. There are dozens of programs. Some are in national parks. Others are operated by private foundations. One such residency program is operated by the MacNamara Foundation. I applied.....I GOT SELECTED....six weeks of uninterrupted work time in Maine....mid-September until Halloween! I am beyond happy, beyond excited or thrilled or most of the other "good" adjectives...beyond words! This is world-class. It is also a little scary...in a really good way!
