It’s the beginning of a new year – the time when many think about things they would like to change and achieve in their lives. For artists, it can be a time for reflection on accomplishments of the past year. What have you achieved and learned? Where do you go from here? What would you like to accomplish by this time next year?

It’s a great time to ponder on these questions and think about our dreams and goals. Here are some articles to help with that:

How to Plan your Art Promotions
How to Set and Achieve Goals

Below are 10 artists who have shared their future goals with us in their spotlights. Please let us know what your dreams are in the comment section below.. or send them via the contact form (I will share them in a subsequent article if I receive enough).

    Style: stylized abstraction on nature theme

    Medium: acrylic, glass beads, beach glass on canvas, prismacolor on paper

    Goals: “I plan to create more paintings and to continue promoting my website. I don't know if I'll be making any stylistic changes to my artwork. In fact, I'm not even sure if I can. People with a unique style tend to be prisoners of it.”

  7. Lynn Gibson


    Style: Organic & Abstract

    Medium: Encaustic

    Where It All Started Lynn Gibson

    Goals: “I would love to take some of the paintings that I already have (I’ve got a few in mind) - and create a sculpture of those paintings, they look almost 3D on the flat surface it would be fun to see them in actual 3D land. The wax is too brittle once off a surface so I need to experiment with materials, I need to achieve that matt flat surface along with the bright colours. Also to keep exhibiting, try and get a solo exhibition going and also one outside of Glasgow – those are the next steps.”
