Last year, as far as years go, was pretty good. There were some hiccups along the way but I think, in general, the year went very positive.
A lot happened in 2017. Dad moved into a senior living facility and we moved to Phoenix to be closer. My plan is to be closer so I can take care of issues as they happen.
We're still trying to get our stuff from St Thomas. That might take a while.
The hurricane has kept us away from the island. Our plans for spending time there are up in the air.
A lot is happening in Phoenix and it's keeping me occupied.
In February last year I started writing this blog and I started creating drawings on my iPad. That has really pleased me. The encouragement I get is amazing.
I am 10 pounds lighter than I was last year at this time. I have been going to the gym regularly since October. I enjoy that and I feel much better for doing it. I hope to drop a ton or two this year.
Art marketing is a tough nut to crack. I'll continue to create digital as well as physical artworks.
I want to learn how to generate an income from my work. There are bunches of options and there is so much that I don't understand. It might help to try different things and see how they work.
The business of selling and making a living with art is a tricky on. I hope to tell you what works for me and what doesn't. Everybody is different and I hope to learn from people who know what they're doing. (I don't know who that is though)
Right now I'm taking some time to myself and let my hair down a little bit.
I hope you make the new year your best year yet.
I'm going to give it my best shot.
