I'm Baaaaaccccckkkk

It has been a wild ride these last 4 months of the year. As the new year approaches, I think everyone finds themselves reflecting on where they have been and what they have accomplished. With deciding to do the artshow in the beginning, I knew I was crazy. I put all of my eggs in one basket and with the help of friends and family, I was able to succeed. It was a long day, but we had a lot of fun. Below are some pictures from the space and the day.

So I am at the time of the year where you set you goals for next year. I love producing art, but I am coming to the concusion that I only work well under pressure. I completed 10 paintings in 2 months to get ready for the show. I need to just keep up this momemtom. With the success of the show, I have learned that I can actually do this. I can sell my paintings and crafts, I just need to stop being scared and take a chance this year whether it is going to local stores and presenting my coasters, glasswear, or cards or trying to push to get into a gallery, fair or restaurant. It is time for me to get serious. I am not going to lie, I am 31 years old and looking back at old journals, I have written this every year as one of my New Years resolutions.

I have had so many thing in the works, but I have half assed quite a bit. I have been wanting to learn HTML for years. I am paying for my $32K education from KU with a bachelors in fine arts with an emphasis in graphics and I never learned how to design a damn website. I have other people maintaining mine, and it has not been updated in over a year and a half. I have had a childrens book that I have written, and even started the illustrations, but in typical Brooke style, I have not finished. All I can say it is time to get it together in 2010. Hahaha!
