2010 Creative Goals


Over the years I have jotted down my creative goals, yet never included them into my journal... curious... This year I gave them the front page hopefully to keep me focused. I've also heard that if you have a goal, share it with others and you are more likely to accomplish what your heart desires. So here goes:


* Deal with my Inner Critic and Fears of Failure *

Production:
• create a hand bound journal for 2010 (check)
• bind 1-2 sketch books a month to sell
• schedule one afternoon a week to paint w/oils (Wednesday)
• complete one "Rusties" painting a month
• complete at least 3 pages a week in my visual journal (if I accomplish this then my 2010 journal will be filled by the end of October)

Creativity:
• visit and draw in a new location each month
• start a new SketchCrawl group in Boise, participate at each international SketchCrawl
• travel to Seattle and spend a day visiting the museum & marketplace sketching as much as possible
• visit a new art gallery
• visit a new museum
• try painting plein air again
• continue learning new printing techniques, make room for my own press
• sketch my neighborhood

Business/Networking:
• get my blog on-line and keep it up to date (check)
• design my website that shows all my work ~ graphic design, illustration, visual journals
• start an etsy site
• apply for BOSCO
• apply for teaching at Journalfest (check)
• apply to Art Journaling Magazine
• Attend more local art events / AIGA events

So there it is... out in the open... seems a bit ambitious, but very exciting.

3mw & Dawn,
Thank you both for your support! I feel like I'm moving along fairly strong right now... come June/July I may need some gentle shoves and kicks in the butt... ;-)
