The process of setting up goals to me, is much like my preparation for creating a new painting or two or three…
It starts with a spark…dream, experience, a place, an idea.
I write down some words, do some sketches, think about colors or not.
I gather the materials and then the deep stuff starts, excitement builds, frustrations set in, more thought processes, action accumulates and then finally, after many tweeks, starts and stops.
Voila, I have a finished painting!

So much like the art-making process, is my goal setting process.
This year, it took a little longer than usual to do this. I’m not sure if it’s because I took my time and thought about it, or the fear factor! So finally, I’m ready to release it so that the action can begin!
-Experiment more with my art;
– Create one new workshop;
-Create an e-book;
-Exercise and take better care of myself;
-Create a video (Me/Art);
-Teach a class/workshop abroad;
-Exhibit in gallery at least once this year;
-Create and sell more art than last year;
-Connect and collaborate more with other artists.
So with a lot of courage, tenacity and time, begins the ride of goal doing. I am prepared. Are you?
