First Application for BFA

The last several weeks have been an absolute blur- I've been so grateful that I decided to only take the 6 credits.  Getting ready to apply for the BFA program has been very stressful...

Currently my office looks like this:

Yes- it is that crammed full of paintings, sketchbooks and other odds and ends- my chair is in the middle of that ocean as a loan island I can swivel around on. 

I had a really hard time narrowing it down to 20 pieces- at the same time I had a hard time finding 20 pieces that I felt could really be considered 'portfolio quality'.  Below are my selections.

It being the final hour I now have a few that I would like to swap out- but I am also completely out of time.  SO the drawings and paintings above are what I am turning in.

We'll see how I do- I should know in a few weeks if I make it or not.  I honestly don't anticipating getting in this time.  There are so many applying and most of them are absolutely AMAZING artists, and I know that the number of applicants getting into the BFA program will be less than the amount applying. 

In anycase- I'll have an application in- worst case I don't make it this time and I have the summer to work on paintings and drawings and I can try again in the fall! :D



  1. Wow, just wow - your art is stunning. That is a bit of a messy desk, but it looks like you're well in the midst of being creative. That's not such a bad thing!

    1. lol; creative chaos I guess... and thank you for your compliment!

    1. Thank you very much! I actually did end up getting in I just got busy and forgot to post about it.

  3. I'm following up regarding the A to Z Challenge. Glad to have you as a participant and sending a reminder to post if you still want to participate. We (the admins of A to Z) will begin gleaning those who are not posting next week. So if you want to continue I encourage you to start posting.

    Thanks and hope to see your A to Z blogs. If not, no worries. There's always next year.
