Setting Goals

When I attended my first PSoA Annual Conference in 2010, I was inspired, amazed, reinvigorated and newly driven. On seeing the winners at the Saturday banquet standing on the stage, I immediately set myself a lofty goal, knowing it would take a lot of work and dedication. I would stand on that stage by 2020! I took the knowledge gained there and applied it to my new portraits. I upped the percentage of portraits and portrait sketches I did to over 50%, even when it meant they would almost certainly not sell but end up in my attic. I listened to audio programs on setting goals and working toward them. I bought instructional videos on portraiture, took notes and tried to apply those techniques
