This year I decided to take things more in hand at the beginning and direct them in the direction I would like them to flow, instead of wildly fighting the current and just trying to stay afloat, which seems to happen without much planning. So, I put in a monthly budget for the business (which can be discouraging to look at but inspiring in that it forces one to think in new directions and come up with bright ideas) and I have tracked out my show dates and events. As far as artistic goals, I want to make some larger sculptural pieces, which I haven’t done in a long time. I think with planning things out, this has more of a chance to occur. So here is to fresh starts and new endeavors!.
