(Portrait of Journey 16"x20" acrylic on illustration board -completed in '06)
Also, my New Year's resolution way back in 2010 was to complete 52 paintings that year. That was a real struggle and, while I emerged victorious at year-end, I pointedly deciding not to attempt it again in 2011. Imagine my surprise when, looking back over 2011, I discovered that I have far exceeded 52 paintings this year! The number is actually somewhere in the high 60s. Things do get easier when you make them a habit.
SO...Here are my goals for 2012:
1) Work out 3x/week (just keep plugging, right?)
2) Complete (3) cohesive bodies of work, each containing at least (12) paintings
3) Have a solo art show
4) Increase my artistic income tenfold (based on 2011 earnings)
What are your personal and/or artistic goals for 2012? Have you been able to maintain goals from previous years? Do you find that once one seemingly insurmountable goal has been accomplished it paves the way for bigger and bigger challenges?
