charcoal on paper
17 x 21

After applying and getting rejected for the last four years, I was just notified that this year I have been awarded an Individual Artist Grant by the Central Minnesota Arts Board!
A much needed and appreciated career and ego boost. The work I submitted with my application was my recent charcoal pieces, much of which I have posted here over the past months.

Dodie, these are absolutely stunning. I "feel" like I am there, looking through the tree branches at the sky. Incredible!

Congratulations Dody! The charcoal piece is beautiful.
I look forward to seeing you soon in MN. We will arrive sometime toward the middle of May.
I'm sorry to hear about your cat. It's so difficult to lose them. Hello to Bob.

Congratulations on your grant! I love your charcoal drawings. I've got you beat in years applying for a state grant though - here -

Hope it leads to good things for you!
