Have you been making resolutions and setting your own goals for 2018?
While I am not very good at resolutions, I do take my goals and intentions for the year seriously. I have been ruminating these past couple weeks on the best ways I can serve myself and my art in 2018.
I expect the first half of 2018 to be quite chaotic with a long-anticipated major home renovation which will leave me without a studio for many months. With that in mind, I am trying to be kind to myself and not give myself unrealistic expectations, only to be disappointed later.
So, I dub 2018, the year of EXPLORATION.
- I will explore a new series of work.
- I will explore new classes and workshops.
- I will explore a new genre of painting, as I am about to begin taking an ABSTRACT class.
- I will explore plein air painting, especially when my studio is unavailable.
I really look forward to seeing how the year and my work materializes!
Wishing everyone a healthy, happy, art-filled year with lots of mindful and meaningful intentions.
