New Year's Resolutions 2017 // Art Goals

New Year's Resolutions 2017 // Art Goals

Welcome to the year 2017, the Year of the Amazon!

It's time to look back on the previous year and review our ups and downs. What challenges did you overcome? What successes did you accomplish?

2016 was a very difficult time for me. No lie. I had a lot of challenges to overcome and honestly, I'm still dealing with them. It was a year of major transition for me. I moved to a new town and once again I felt like I had to restart my life over. New school for my son, new community to find my place in, new day jobs, so much to adjust to. It was hard.

It was also a successful year for my business, Amazon Art Studio. I had some wonderful collaborations, new clients and successful events. 2017 looks to be shaping up to another good year with new parties adding to our calendar and other plans in place. More to come on that as it develops!

For 2017, I have 3 major art goals.

  1. I will commit to creating a new video every week. I love creating videos about my art process, day in the life and how to videos. Sharing my passion is a part of who I am. So get ready for more Amazon!

  2. To create a fantasy based portfolio. I want to reconnect with my Illustration roots and put together that dream portfolio. Paintings rich in texture. Texture will be a big focus of these paintings. Dreamy color palettes and strong bold imagery. Look for more videos on my art updates ;)

  3. Get more active and incorporate a more plant strong diet. Last spring I choose to eat a vegan diet and I felt AMAZING. I had a mental clarity which I have never experienced before in my life. My body felt great and energized. I had also discovered that my mental well being was stronger, more positive. Towards the fall and winter I fell back into old eating habits and I suffered for it. I was sick A LOT and lost my clarity. Lost my energy and felt like GARBAGE. Exercise and a healthy diet will keep me in fighting shape to smash my artistic goals.

Now for those of you how are on the “New Year’s Resolutions are pointless” train. Pump. Your. Brakes. Every day is a chance to shape your life for the better the great warrior princess herself, Xena said "You are what you do. You can recreate yourself every second of your life." What I’m getting at is you have the power to create and design the life you want. Yes we do have limitations. However there are ways to improve your time here on earth. I am blessed that I do have my health, my creativity and a mind to see solutions. Take into account of what you have in this life. Now how can you use these tools to advance yourself forward?

I have created what I call a Hustle Binder. It is my tool to keep me on track with my goals. I would love to share it with you all. Sounds good? It’s an intense system, not for the weak of heart! You need a system to keep you accountable and ontrack. Or else those Resolutions just become wishes. Remember the Dream is free, the Hustle is sold separately.

See you in a future video!
