Ok. Action plans must now go in effect. Now what? AEI is over, until 2010. I have ONE YEAR to put ACTIONS from this course INTO MY LIFE. There are MANY things to do. Thank God, Jim & Adrianne gave us a huge module as a guide. I took notes. I should've shot video (but presenters probably wouldn't have liked that, giggle).
http://www.broward.org/arts/staff/staff_shermer.htm is where you can get on Jim's email list to be notified of 2010 AEI. YOU MUST ATTEND - NO EXCUSES! Yes, it was difficult making it all 4 Saturdays, for the entire day, but this is well worth it! This is a paradigm shift. Major shift. Earthquakes.
Action #1: I SELL ART. I SELL ART. Repeat after myself: I SELL ART. I have sold to Arturo in Allentown, Pennsylvania; to a lady in Illinois; to a next door neighbor; an unknown at Cafe Tu Tu Tango; to a friend in North Miami. I SELL ART. Repeat. Everyone from AEI must repeat.
Action #2: Business plan needs a project: I am going to paint TREES. I love trees for shade, for colors, for the rain drips, for sun dappling...palm trees, oak trees, banyan trees, mysterious trees. Moody, happy, colorful, muted trees! I am going to sell them online, sell them at exhibit(s) like Deering Estate (there is one there until 8/16! Go see it!)
Action #3: Clean studio.
Action #4: Work on the penny project.
Action #5: Say adios por ahora (good bye for now!
