I made a few miss steps this year that has set me back a few of my goals. I tried a Kickstarter for a personal project I wanted to launch, but it wasn't funded. I also tried to an Ebay an old painting that was about Auctions and the idea that the act of auctions helps define the work as an art work. I also moved from Waco, away from a job that was paying me well to a no job situation in East Texas. I thought I could land something out here, but it took me until late November to get something. Also the move over the summer and the house was not ready, so I lost a lot of art production time. I nearly got scammed out of art by email. Plus I still have mounds of student debt to pay, health insurance is unaffordable, and money is tight.
A few things did work out. Because I didn't have a full time job, when I got my studio set up, I gained a bit of lost time. I also broke through on a possible new direction in my art. I had several art shows over the course of this year. I am thankful for the health/happy family, house, and studio. We have no car payments.
