Last minute Lucy

It’s okay, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I am a procrastinator in my personal life, especially when it comes to art. Rather, pursuing artistic opportunities like grants or exhibitions. I just entered eight pieces in the Individual Artist category for Works on Paper for a grant offered to Maryland residents. I produced and uploaded the eight required pieces the day before they were due and shipped off the consent form the last possible minute to be eligible for this grant. I have had no luck whatsoever sending in examples of work done on a normal schedule, like normal people do, weeks, months or a few years before the deadline, so figured I had as much of a chance of getting something if I just made the art the day before the deadline. Couldn’t do any worse than I have for the past ten or so years I’ve attempted to get a little monetary nod from my supposed peers. I got nothing to lose. And in a sick way, it felt good to have a deadline to create something visual.


  1. I LOVE THESE. I am newly amazed every time I see new work from you. You are so ridiculously talented. You should be given a sum of one million dollars.

  2. i’m with arika…these are gorgeous. And thoughtful and jarring and all the things I love about your work.

    Really nice pieces. And maybe the last minute submissions will work in your favor again.
