Goals? Very good question, Jennifer. I've had some vague thoughts about goals for this year and with your question and others in our group taking this question and putting their ideas into specifics I have taken my thoughts more seriously. I've kept my intentions private in the past. With goals kept within my own mind, I would not risk anyone knowing of failures. Therefor, this is not an easy task for me. I suppose it is time to share, with hopes that 2012 will hold success.
1. Continue with strong conviction to improve
2. Enter at least 3 shows
3. Continue with mug shots until the number of 100 is reached
4. Learn to frame
5. Learn more about plein air and participate in painting outside
Now, of course, I will have to post these goals in the studio in order to keep them front and center. It's very easy to let other things get in the way and/or to just simply forget.
