THE BEST DAY EVER!! (ELIZABETH GREENSHIELDS FOUNDATION GRANT!!)









I just found out that I have RECEIVED AN ELIZABETH GREENSHIELDS FOUNDATION GRANT!!!! I am so incredibly excited and grateful to have received this prestigious grant! I've actually been applying for it for the last ten years, so it totally blows my mind to have actually received one! Ya, they're totally the best foundation ever for their ongoing international support of realist artists and having them support me in my studies in Italy is so incredibly heart warming! (three cheers for persistence;) :D
