1. Developed outdoor painting skills. Greater focus selecting subject matter that enhanced the whole of my body of work. Identified composition as a focal point, recognized the need to edit and hone the gist of the paintings to most clearly communicate this idea. Learned to think of a body of work, rather than individual pieces. I advanced my abilities taking small field study paintings into the studio to produce much larger canvases. 2. I evaluated these achievements based on feedback from the teachers and students whose classes I gave demos, lectures and showings to. 2: 1. Planning a budget for a project, amending it to reflect changing circumstances. Shopping for vendors to better fit the needs and budget of project. Developed persuasive writing skills in pitching different art centers on a proposed exhibit. Small, but not insignificant: developed personal presentation skills in approaching various commercial properties for permission to paint on their grounds. 2. I successfully adjusted my budget when unable to mount an exhibit in the grant period. I stayed within that budget. Feedback from the students, teachers and other artists that comment on the way I handle my art as a business. Exhibiting will manifest the business side more clearly.
