46. The Countdown Begins.

There was a lot accomplished in 2017 for this “emerging” artist. The year ahead will be more about producing work and less about classes and networking. I’ll have to put a polish on my website, finish artwork for a solo show in the summer, and wrap up the first draft of my second novel. Much of my effort, though, will be in promotion.

If there is any New Year’s resolution, it’s to exercise more. Too much sitting is no good for us old girls. I like this article from Sixty & Me on keeping fit:

“If you have been sedentary for a while and want to start an exercise routine, just start slow. Talk to your doctor before making big changes in your physical activity level. One of the best ways to exercise is simply to walk for 30 minutes per day.”
