100 in 2008
i'm very careful about choosing my new year's resolutions .... i pick things that seem like something big to aspire to ... but that, with some effort, are doable ....

this year's resolution is to do 100 canvases .... in the calendar year ....
last year i finsihed about 85 ..... and that was with GREAT effort .... in the fall i did 30 pieces in 30 days .... but i had long lulls of no completed work .... like during the summer when my kids are home .... and during holidays and vacation time ..... so .... it will take a HUGE concerted efftort to get to 100 ..... 10 a month and done early is my plan .... we'll see how that plan goes! .....

i got to 100 completed canvases in september .... and i am still going strong .....

100 ended up being not too hard to accomplish, in part, because i started working on smaller canvases.... many of my completed pieces are six inches square ... my thinking is that with the economy in the state that it is, i might have added success if i try selling small pieces in addition to my usual large ones .... although, this year i've also completed my largest canvases ever, six feet by four feet ..... two of them!

p.s. 139 paintings finished in 2008... tra la la
