I reviewed my Art Goal list for 2008 and find that I'm pretty much repeating it for 2009. I've added some specificity to it with the hopes that I'll achieve more this year!

Here's my art list for 2009:
1 - Plein Air work - at least once per month
2 - Do art daily - can be sketch in a journal or painting
3 - Work and study art books and DVDs
4 - Take workshops and/or classes - either online or "live"
5 - Finish my food blog so I can have the cookbook printed at the end of the year - must do at least one post per week.

One idea I got from Ann in the EDM online group was to mark off the art goals on a calendar. She prints her calendar from this site. I decided to use this printed calendar, which prints onto one page, and will color code my art goals onto each day using the following key:
Yellow = Plein Air work
Red = Journal work
Blue = Painting
Green = Food blog

I can also list the books/DVDs/classes/workshops on the back of the calendar or footnote them on the front.

A wonderful list Brenda!

I have done the art calendar for the year as well...actually before I started my blog...and it really was cool that at the end of the year I could actually see where my art time was spent...Some months were filled...others very sporadic...a very interesting study, for sure...I think you will really like doing it! :)

Happy new Year to You...may it be delightfully art-filled! :)

Sounds like wonderful goals, Bren! and my gracious, you are so busy -- please please take time for yourself -- break out those paints and keep painting. I love your yupo paintings and look forward to even more wonderful works in 2009! May next year be filled with every blessing and joy... thank you for your constant support and most of all, your treasured friendship!
