Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I will create a series of 12-18 paintings to be exhibited at a local hospital, honing my technical and practical skills as a working artist. I will get feedback on my new work as well as exhibition preparation and execution from a recognized expert in Minnesota's artistic community. 2: I will learn how to create high quality prints of my work and I will seek out local businesses to carry them in their shops. I will get feedback on the process from a recognized expert in the community.
