June Goal Check In


I love making goals. Revisiting this list every few months helps me see how important it is to do just that, revisit. It helps me see that the small steps I’m taking do add up. Here’s the 2016 goal check in.

Establish daily art habits.
Status: Needs Work
This has been a disaster in light of recent events. I still have hope.

Open an etsy store.
Status: On it!
Instead, I’m rethinking my website and hopefully I’m working toward an online shop here at I’m really excited about this.

Create a budget and track expenses.

So far: Big fat fail on this one.

Read six art related books.
Status: On it!
(1) Judgement of Paris
(2) Big Magic
(3) The Creative Habit - Twyla Tharp
(4) Making Your Creative Mark- Eric Maisel
(5) The Artist’s Guide to Selling Work - Although this may not count due to skipping sections that are no longer relevant.
(6) Just started #6.

Status: On it!
Have successfully posted an article a week. Maybe 2017 will have the goal of posting twice a week.

Update website
Status: On it!
My website needs updating but I’m going to put that energy instead into my new site.

Participate in a 30 day challenge.
Status: Done and done
January- successfully completed 30 paintings in 30 day challenge.
Currently- working through #100daysofmaking. I fell behind but I’ll work through all 100 paintings as the summer progresses.

Bonus Round:

Show participation:
Have participated in three shows with a fourth coming up and have sold a small piece.

What are your 2016 goals? How are you making sure you work on them throughout the year?
