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…
