1. I will create every day in 2016. Or almost every day!

2. I will market every day in 2016. Or at least on lots of days!

3. I will make some new, excellent connections in 2016. And not just Facebook friends and twitter followers!

4. I will find at least one person who wants to write about me in 2016. I will get myself profiled and interviewed!

5. I will have lots of rich, meaningful experiences NOT related to art in 2016. Art is great but so are lots of other things!

6. If I haven’t already, I will find my artistic voice in 2016. I am tired of not making art that is “really mine”!

7. I will play more in 2016 and I will also take myself more seriously in 2016. I want to do both!

8. I will sell lots of art in 2016. Or at least some!

9. I will experiment and explore in 2016. Not day after day of the same old thing!

10. I will lead a rich, healthy life in 2016, one that includes art but that also includes all sort of other things, like love and friendship. 2016 will be an “art plus” year!
