Another artist friend of mine has inspired me and encouraged me to complete this task. We have similar goals, as one might expect from like-minded people.
In the last few years, I have focused on expanding my teaching with the City of St. John's, which has worked quite well. I have also embarked upon setting up my own studio space which is a major project to say the least. The "shed" as it is affectionately known, is still a work in progress but is functional for classes with heat and light. Grand opening will be scheduled for the Fall 2011....one of my goals listed below. My focus will now get back to what it originally was...the production, marketing and sale of my own artwork.
Most of my goals for 2011 can be subdivided into three main categories - learning activities, productivity, and visibility:
One goal doesn't fit exactly into either of the three categories above....create an artist's statement. I have actually already completed this task and is posted on my blog.
Some of the above goals have already been started. Since this is only the end of the second full week in 2011, I think I have made a great start.
I encourage my readers to keep me mindful of my goals and on the right track for 2011. If there are any goals you think I have missed, please let me know your thoughts!
