New Year New Goals for 2011

New Year New Goal. Well it is already 2011 I find that hard to believe. Let me start by reporting on my successes from last year. I did not complete the planned 104 paintings in 364 days. But that has not stopped me because I did make it to 43 paintings in 1 year. Which is more than the 15 I did the year before that. I am still encouraged. I really should put the limit at 50 this year, but I am going to go ahead and shoot for 100. You never know I may reach it. However I do have some rather large paintings planned and they take more time so I am sure that will cut into my quantity goal. Since I do not skimp on quality for quantity it will be what it will be.
Since I have not blogged since July let me fill you on what has been going on. I started teaching Acrylic painting classes 2 nights a week for adults and I really enjoy it. I teach Wed nights and Thursday nights from 7ish to 9ish at the Art Location in Fayetteville, AR. We do 10 week sessions with an art show at the finish of the session. I am now on my 2nd session and it really has been fun. I have made some great art friends and met some wonderful people along the way we have even managed to create some great art.

Four of my paintings were selected to be placed in a local gallery here in Fayetteville. Then 1 painting was chosen to be placed in a local gallery in Rogers.

I had several of my works on display in local eating establishments for about a month and received lots of great feedback.

I entered a local art festival and sold a few paintings and lots of prints in September.

I had a one woman art show featuring over 60 works at Arkansas Laser Solutions on Dec 18th for the holidays. I sold a few prints and a painting or 2 for Christmas. Which was a great way to end the year.

This year lots of stuff is already happening. I will be having a one woman show at the White Lotus Spa in Fayetteville in April and I will be one of the featured artist on their web site.

I have new paintings planned for the year that will take me in a different direction. I plan on painting more animals and flowers and modern landscapes. It should be really fun. I also see some boats in my future… Also I will be trying to become a Disney Fine Artist so I will be creating works to submit to Disney. Cross your fingers.. I think I can, I think I can ….

I will also be creating some works for children’s rooms. I love bright colors they love bright colors – I like fun happy images they like fun happy images… it ‘s a good fit. We shall see what I come up with.

I will also be signing up with a local trade organization to sell art to various local businesses. Also will be offering my talent for animal and people portraits with them.

So lots to do and so little time to do it in. That is all that has been going on. Right now I am working on my latest painting of 3 horses and I will post with this Blog a photo of my last work which was a commission for a local spa of a purple Iris.
