The Year is Nearly Over…

The Year is Nearly Over...

And it is time to sit down and think of the things accomplished during 2008… It is a suggestion I welcome every year from Alyson at the Art Biz Blog, which I have been reading religiously every day for.. humm.. I’d say well over 2 years.

I like the exercise of listing accomplishments because it takes my mind of things that I haven’t (yet)done, and I do believe it’s good to tap yourself on the back. This year was my best so far as an artist, despite our economic situation, and I am quite proud of my list…!

– I had my first solo exhibition,
– attended my first Art Fair,
– got into 2 new galleries,
– applied to an Art Council Award for the first time,
– created new business cards and promotional leaflets,
– got a fantastic new website,
– got chosen for a grant under the Per Cent Art Scheme,
– (finally) started a blog,
– created 43 paintings,
– sold 28 paintings,

I’m itching to make a list of the things I haven’t done, but I will turn that into a GOAL list and write it down right here so I can be accountable for it…

I’m Expanding…

I mean… I now have gallery representation in Dublin, at the Mulvany Bros Kingswood Art Gallery , where there is a fantastic show at the moment…
This is brilliant since I have also got in Co.Cork recently at the beautiful, charming and dainty Garden Gallery, in Glounthaune, 10 minutes from Cork city. Owner Jacqui Drinan has just prepared an other lovely exhibition which opened officially last Saturday…
