It’s been quite a while since I wrote a blog post, so I thought I’d start the new year off with a list of goals for 2020. Some are attainable. Others, not so much.
This year, I want to:
Write a blog post at least once a month
Write more short stories
See more art
Make more art
Promote my art
Sell my art
Win the lottery
It’s that time of year again. Time to regroup. Time to reflect. And most importantly, time to set goals. Here then, are my plans for the upcoming year.

Every artist should have a list of goals. Here are some of mine:
- Start new projects
- Explore new subjects
- Reduce production costs
- Raise money for my art business
- Pay off debt
- Create and monitor a budget
- Expand the type of distribution channels where my art is available
- Develop my brand and increase brand awareness
- Get new clients
- Spend more time networking
- Learn more business skills
Realist goals are important. Without them, you will get nowhere. Here are some of mine.

OK…here are some of my realistic goals:
- Explore new subjects.
- Utilize new materials.
- Build my brand and increase awareness.
- Get my art into more galleries, shows and fairs.
- Increase the quantity of art I produce.
