really, i just want to paint dollhouses and do stained glass that incorporates my love of textiles. which leads me to scandinavia. i could apply to the home of marimekko, but instead i think i'll apply to sweden. there's a 23 percent acceptance rate (far higher than most places) and they don't require you know swedish; although they encourage it. plus, i know some kids there.
i'm also going to apply for skowhegan for this summer (the deadline is fast approaching) and a marine headlands residency. i'm scared to do anything outside of a major city, since i can't drive, but maybe it won't be an issue. all of these applications want slides and the procedures seem daunting, but i need fire under my ass and come may i won't know what to do with my life.... so might as well paint some place far away for free.
