|OLDER THAN DIRT|
Wednesday, January 15, 2014
Every year I write down my goals for the coming year, then I put the list away and take it out the next year to see how things went. If you are familiar with the rules of goal setting, you know it MUST BE WRITTEN DOWN, otherwise it is only a wish, not a goal. So, every year I write down..."get my AWS signature membership status". I thought it was never going to happen. Last year I made it into the show, so I fretted all year what to enter this year. I was able to enter two paintings since I was eligible for signature. My problem was that AWS does not accept collage elements in a water media painting. If you have been following my progress, you know I am always adding collage! The other challenge was that the two entries had to look like the same person painted them. Since I rarely do anything the same way twice, I was in a quandary. After stressing and stressing, I finally decided to enter this one and another I thought the style was similar enough. I was very prepared to be disappointed but HURRAH! AWS accepted this painting.
One always has to have goals yet to be met. It motivates us to work harder and do better. I still have a few more goals on my list. How about you? Have you written down your list yet? It's not too late so grab that pen, find some quiet reflective time and get started making your dreams come true.
