Happy New Year! Here are my 10 Art Goals!

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe it is a new year! 2020 feels so weird to write!

I know this is going to be the best year yet!

I love writing goals and do so not just around New Years.

Here are some of my art related goals for 2020!

  1. Make more art (new and current projects)
  2. Have more exhibitions and apply to more (I want to apply to 7 art calls per month)
  3. Post more consistently on social media – blog 2x a month, Instagram every other day!
  4. Sell more art and do more commissions for people (I would like to do one commission per month)
  5. Walk in nature at least once a month to stay inspired
  6. Keep website updated- check and update biweekly
  7. Exercise and sleep well to stay motivated and inspired
  8. Keep studio clean and organized to want to work more
  9. Read 1-2 books a month to stay inspired
  10. Designate a time once a week to sketch ideas and brainstorm

 

What are some goals you have for 2020?

Let me know in the comments. I would love to hear from you!  By sharing our goals we can hold each other accountable and encourage and support each other through the year to make it a wonderful one!

New Years Goals let me guess you want to lose weight? Well if you’re an artist have you thought about goals for your art business. Check out my list of 10 art goals if you need some ideas!

Ebook Patched by Jackie Partridge

Patched was published in 2018 with the Waterloo Arts Fund. It is a book of 38 pages- a collection of images colour printed of trees around Waterloo Region that have been altered by adding map paper pulp in areas where the bark has naturally peeled away. I see this act of patching trees as a form of mending or offering of paper back to the tree. In addition to the photographs in my book- there are a series of nature appreciation poems. At the back of the book I have included information about my art process.

I sell my published hard cover book for $50. And I sell my ebook for $11.99. The Ebook is a digital PDF version of my hardcover book.

Please comment if you have any questions about my book or Ebook!
