What an amazing year for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, one million times thank you to each and every one of my supporters! I cannot even begin to find the words to express how fortunate and humbled I am by everyone’s support. Each Like, comment, retweet, purchase, and referral helps so much. You guys have helped me so much and I am forever grateful. But the year isn’t over? Well yes and no, as you can tell that I am not so great at blogging consistently. Will I get better? Definitely maybe.
But yes 2018 is over in the sense that the art fair season is winding down and we could see snow in the next few weeks. Yikes! My art fair tour was amazing and exhausting. I got to meet a lot of really cool people and make some new friends. I got to see areas I may have never gone to had it not been for the art fairs. It was a great experience and good for learning my market and helping me know how to price my works. One take away is next year I only plan to do 5 instead of 8. One goal is to have one of the art fairs be farther away for 2019. Yes I have submitted a few applications already.
What a better way to end the season but to be a part of Artprize 10! This has been a goal to be a part of this for six years now, and last year I worked up the nerve to make it a goal for this year. So I am in Artprize 2018 at One Trick Pony. So thank you to anyone and everyone who is checking out my work down there and voting for me. Big thank you to One Trick Pony for requesting me to be at their venue, very cool spot to be at.
With high hopes of a few more decent sales in the next two months. I plan to reinvest into some mega canvas to experiment with and work my way towards my 2019 goal. What is my 2019 goal? Well I stopped by a few amazing galleries this year and my hopes are to expand into some of these better known and beautiful spaces. One promising gallery was Chicago Art Source. I had stopped in there and had a nice quick conversation with one of the curators who explained their process better and showed me what they were looking for. They are able to move jumbo paintings in their location. They were positive about my style and work on my website and encouraged me to do some large scale work and apply to be an affiliate. So my goal is to get into their affiliate artist library and push to be in one of their shows around this time next year. I also hope to expand my network of galleries to broaden my exposure.
I also plan to do some more videos, do some live classes, and continue to hunt for studio space. Well that is all for now, stay tuned into my social channels to see what I am working on next!

Thanks again everyone,
