2018: New Year – New Intentions

 Hello 2018!
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.
