2016 Artists Goals

Tue Feb 23, 2016, 11:52 AM


2016 Artists Goals

Hi there! So I've been really bad about keeping up with blogs and art journals of late. Mainly because I've been so busy I haven't been able to update regularly. I did want to take a moment however to post my 2016 artists goals for the year. I've been slowly transitioning into new forms of media and experimenting a lot lately. More so than ever I've been wanting to learn and absorb as much as I can from my environment and other artists. My latest endeavor was helping with a mural project for the Lake Worth street painting festival in Florida. Which was designed by Cyndi Kostylo.  Its a 20ft x 10ft mural wrapped around a shipping container. This container will travel around to various music and art festivals around the FL state. I was supper thankful for this opportunity and I learned a ton! Its a whole other way to approach to a project when it comes to paint than chalk.

This got me thinking more about what I wanted to achieve this year. I'd like to do more of a variety of subjects and do more test projects. This year is about learning as much as I can. So each project I take on will have to be something I've never tried or have done before. I'm still very much trying to find my artistic voice. So far its been more replicas or studies from masters. Which I will say have helped also, but I don't have that once piece I'm supper proud of yet, or feel like I should keep doing more of. Maybe eventually I'll get there. 

Diving into prints


The last few festivals I've gone too people have been asking for prints. I have a few images I'd like to finish off from last season and get those into the print shop. The original work that I do is usually referenced from photos I've taken from zoos or parks I have visited. I have several photos I want to paint , so I would like to fill my print store with 5 or so more prints for the year. On average it takes me 3-4 weeks to complete a artwork I deem print worthy. Though its because I only get to work on weekends for a few hours at a time and its between projects. Streaming them helps too, and having a few friends online to keep me focused on finishing them. I'm using fine art america for now to host my prints: fineartamerica.com/profiles/ca…

Traveling

Alright, so I caught the travel bug. I did a little bit of it last year with the art festivals, but I've also taken up trail running. Looking into mixing the 2 if I can. Combining running with art has been a little bit of a challenge so far. The few running events in the spring here in FL are the same weekends as art events. I kinda feel like I want to do one camping/hiking someplace up north. I get my nomad soon, so I could take that along with and do some plein air painting and sketching. If anyone has any parks or camping trips that they have enjoyed which are for a moderate hiker, please let me know. I'd live to hear!
