It's almost Christmas (wow) and 2013 is coming to a close, of course a natural time to reflect. :) I've been thinking about my painting and my 500-painting journey that officially started 10 months ago.
I haven't been about to reach my goal of painting 3-4 times per week, but still, I really am amazed at how I've grown as an artist already (currently 82 complete).
The photo to the left is from a little craft fair I did a few months ago. It was good for me to work towards a deadline and I was proud to see it all come together. The event itself was pretty much a flop for me in terms of sales though; it just wasn't my market (more of a stocking stuffer type of event). Anyway, it has spurred me on to finding what is my market and how I can connect with people who would love to hang my paintings in their homes! So here are a few of my new (and some refined) paintings goals for 2014:
This is all such a tricky balance. Unfortunately I'm not the type of person who has boundless energy and can stay up late bustling around. I hope that having goals will help motivate me to keep moving forward (and not add more stress to my life). I am very thankful for the encouragement I've received from family and friends about this painting journey. I love that I'm not doing this alone. And a special thanks to my husband Wes who has been cheering me on from day one! Merry Christmas to you all! Love, Jessica

I'm on a mission to paint 500 paintings. How long will it take? What will I learn along the way? Join me on the journey and follow my progress!
