It is still easy to be overwhelmed with a big list of wants! How can we manage to work at our wants and still have fun?
How about simplifying the list. I love what my friend Marsha Savage is doing. She is setting a 30 day plan for her art to-do list. Breaking the tasks into monthly chunks makes it less daunting than working on a huge list. I have things I want to accomplish but they take time and effort to achieve. Having monthly tasks helps keep me focused.
One of my 'wants' was to achieve Master Circle status with IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies) It took a few years of entering shows and getting my work accepted but I did it! I will get my medallion at the next convention in 2015. The hard work was worth it!
If you have art wants give a 30 day art plan a try. Make it simple and manageable so that you can work towards achieving your own personal wants.
