I have some wonderful news to share with everyone. I have been accepted to the Julia and David White Artist Colony in Costa Rica for a month long artist residency in December. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to explore and create in the lush landscape and cultural traditions of Costa Rica. They provide me with a private apartment and art studio and this opportunity will give me the gift of time to create in peace and tranquility amongst other artist and creative people. I am so excited and nervous about this trip and I can’t wait to create in another country. This will be longest I have ever been away from home.
To help offset the costs of this venture I have created a kickstarter.com project. Anyone can contribute and help support me and get artwork in return. Please go here for more info: http://www.kickstarter.com/e/DRRwO/projects/shannonamidon/costa-rican-artist-residency
