The picture above is from the Art Show. I won’t go into detail, but you can read about it here. It was something else and I saw pieces that had me speechless!
But enough about that.
I always look forward to the start of a New Year and 2017 is no different. I guess it’s because it feels like a fresh start or it could be a do over. And I take Day One of the New Year very seriously…and by seriously, I mean resolutions.
It’s been a challenging year. Some things great and some things stretched me so far out of my comfort zone that I was physically uncomfortable. But whether the things that I was resolved to accomplish came to fruition or a complete disaster, I did it.
For myself and to make myself accountable I write everything down old school. There is just something satisfying keeping that crisp piece of paper with me in January and by December that crisp piece of paper has softened with wear and a full of crossed off goals. Frankly, it doesn’t get any better!
I know I have talked about this before, but its worth another post. Because submitting my work to a curator was big on my list last year and as I write this my work is hanging in gallery now. I didn’t win anything, but that wasn’t my goal. My goal was to submit a piece of art and it happened because that goal was always in my face.
So if you want things to happen, make them happen by making those resolutions and hold yourself accountable.
I am looking forward to 2017 and I hope it will be a great year for you too!
Be Well and Happy!
