“The Good Idea Grant program fosters the growth of Maine’s artists by supporting the creation of new work or professional development. Any "good idea" that furthers an individual artist's creative growth is eligible for the grant.”
Rick used the grant money to hire a helicopter to fly him over the islands off the coast of Belfast Maine. From above, Rick was able to see and experience the beauty and uniqueness of the coast and coastal islands firsthand. Rick believes his experience of leaning out of a helicopter door and personally viewing the Maine Coast will have a profound impact on his work.
