yesterday afternoon I started (and got a good way through) my business plan. I read on Tracey Keller's (google her, what a great artist and inspiration!) website that she prepares them for artists and most don't action them. So mike helped me write mine up and will help me action it too, because he wants me to succeed almost as much as I want to succeed. I have done 3 month, 6 month and 12 month and while I need to work on the 12 month one and a little on the 6 month, the 3 month is underway, even though I have started it from June, so I am getting a head start. I have also broken the week up into manageable pieces, with 2 solid painting days - Monday to get the week off to a flying start and Thursday, from 8-30 to 2-30. and factoring in a class once a week at least. I am going to try a new lady teacher this week on wednesday, to see how she is. I am going to work on the large oil paintings in class. I am in a 7 year, but I have to remember that I did start all this stuff back in 2001 and even before that...I just have really hit it since moving here in 2007. Number 6 houses are great for creativity.
