“The skies are always clear somewhere. Shine!” Me
I thought of this statement when I was working out ideas for a summer promotion plan. I started to feel like things never go my way. I realize that its b.s. and hurtful thinking to entertain those thoughts. So I have to let them go.
With that said I scored a show for a gallery that will feature my work in various capacities for the next three months!

“Follow your bliss, and doors will open for you that you never knew existed. Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls. ” Joseph Campbell
I chose the quote to remind myself to follow my purpose and not let fear run my life!

Warren Stokes Maze art
I spend a few hours a week prospecting on sites like craigslist and linked in for art opportunities. Last week I applied for several opportunities and ended up being accepted to two art exhibitions. Living in Denver I probably won’t be in both as one is in New York.
What inspires me is if I can stick with this on a consistent basis and a few other daily duties I feel confident I will reach my goals. The problem is progress always seems to slow me down. I found out about both shows Thursday and in turn took off Friday and didn’t work on the weekend! Bad artist!!!!

“Don’t cry because its over smile because it happened!” Dr Seuss
I chose the quote today because it reminded me to smile and enjoy the journey of life. Too many times I get caught up in life and dead ends and forget to smile and enjoy the fact that I’m still in the game!
At the end of the day I draw mazes for a living and need to realize that it cannot get any better than that.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
― Barack Obama
I like the quote with the maze. With my new sense of focus I’m starting to make changes in the way I see the art business. The tough part of course will be staying committed to change and remaining consistent.

“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” Nido Qubein
I chose the quote to match my outlook. Over the past two years I have made major progress in my art career from my skills to building a business. Problem is at this point I cannot make a living from my earnings.
I realize that I need to work this as a business. I have a list of tasks that I have done to build so far I just have yet to try them on a consist daily basis. Starting today I’m focused on giving a 100% focused effort toward making a living.
I started with a 4 goals.
1. Take a single action or more a day toward your art business.
2. Create a profitable online gallery/shop for sales by May 1, 2014
3. Have 2 exhibitions by March 17th, 2015
4. Make 1 million in art sales by March 17th 2015
