The details don't matter...?

That's how it is with life...right? At first glance the instructions seem simple. All that is required is laid out step by simple step. But the real work comes in the small details.  That's what makes it all come to life... the 'small details'. School? A spouse? Children? A house? Career? Love?
Aren't these the choices that make it all come together? 

I think I'm stuck. I'm still trying to figure things out.  I've never arrived or finished the drawing.  I'm still taking the stick figures of my life and embellishing them with small details.
I should be ok. After all, I am an artist. Right?

Applying to UCONN

I have undertaken the rigorous and highly competitive application process for admission into UCONN's graduate program for Fine Arts.  I want to gain entry into the program for the fall semester of 2014. I am working hard on my application. UCONN' s Art School only accepts 5 applicants a year into the program!

I have written my Artist Statement of Purpose for UCONN and would love any constructive criticism. The statement should stand out and should tell the program's admissions committee all I would like to bring out in a personal interview. Include reasons for undertaking graduate work, ultimate plans,  and answer the questions who am I, where I've been and where I'm going in relation to art.

Please click the link below and read my attached statement to give any constructive criticisms.
Thank you for your time. Peace
