from the Right Brain Business Plan Year In Review Video Chat with Jennifer Lee author and founder of RBBP
The Cinquain inside the box top says,
making, sharing, selling
building a self-sustaining studio
It is based on studio goals that I set in Feb 2013 studio plan
I really felt this project was a perfect way to celebrate all that has been done here in the studio this year. It was certainly a year of bursting out of the confinement imposed by arachnoiditis and really pushing myself to put everything "out there". The effort involved in making that happen is not something that I take lightly. This project was really a fun way to recap these accomplishments and remember what I have been doing with my vertical time this year.
In addition to stocking up on an all new studio supply of prints, post cards, and calendars of my own work, I have gained confidence in my work and established my StudioYouTube channel *continued showing and working with the Wellsville Art Association* licensed the painting, Honesty & Hope for show on Pain Exhibit.Org, with coverage in the American News Report, Pain Report featured pain art* resumed participation with Belfast Organization for Artists (BOFA) *applied for and was selected as the Artist for the Official Great Wellsville Balloon Rally 2013 Wellsville Daily Reporter *created, published, and sold my own fine art coloring book* had my FIRST ever local solo show & sale* became an active member of Allegany Artisans Studio Tour* planned and implemented my own collaborative art exhibit A Round Now In A Square Time sponsored by the Wellsville Art Association* was a featured artist at OneFive4 gallery online10 point profile* and began making my own hand-painted Christmas cards.
These activities were made possible through the adaptability of the ostrich cot featured in my Works in Progress Reasonable Accommodations video AND the wonderful support of Friends and Family who believed that this work was worthy of public consumption. MANY, MANY THANKS TO ALL OF THEM. They do know who they are.
This Explosive Box for an explosive year is a great hands-on, engaging, visual record...like a 3d scrap book ...that jogs your mind and memories and inspires reflection for planning for next year. The tangibility of the project really pushed me to live in the MOMENTS of reflection before jumping to other new ideas.
