From Jennifer D. Anderson:
I wanted to let you know that your last newsletter and the idea of the Artist Breakthrough Program has been on my mind since reading it. The idea of a sort of bootcamp or dedicated incubator period just seemed to resonate with me very strongly.
So tonight I have decided to use the month of February (its a great month and my birthday is at the end so its equally inspiring ) to jump in and get out and about in the LA art world. In the next few days I will finalize my plans and research to have everything in place to complete my list of 28 things to do in the 28 days of February:
1. Go to 28 galleries
2. Comment on 28 blogs
3. Email 28 LA artists
4. Make a total of 28 blog posts (on my own blog) or posts of my art or a link to my website on art related sites
5. Send out 28 packets to galleries/alternative spaces, etc.
6. And lastly – keep a daily journal to write 28 positive things about me and my art/art practice as well as a brief daily entry about my goals.
Realistically I know I am expecting a lot from myself, but I am feeling such a great surge of confidence from the thought of using this month to focus on me and my goals. Its such a great idea – and I just wanted to share since I am "borrowing" it from you and your coach! If the "class" generates this much energy for other people then I know it will be a great success.
Jennifer, this is great! I’m so happy you’re inspired–I can feel your enthusiasm in your words. However, I’m afraid I have to burst your bubble. This February is a Leap Year. Are you up for 29 days?
Does anyone else want to match Jennifer’s goals?
