A friend reminded me that I have "Dwell in Possibilities" stenciled across my studio steps. (Sometimes we need to be reminded of our own mantras!) So I returned to that mantra and realized, once again, that there are loads of possibilities out there. I just have to grab on!
So 2012 has been a year of grabbing onto possibilities. Sometimes they work and other times they don't and may even fail miserably. But think about it. A failed possibility can be turned into a learning experience which then leads to another possibility. Hope abounds! I am the eternal optimist!
As a result of my reflecting, rethinking, taking risks, and looking for the possibilities 2012 has turned out pretty good. I took the financial risk to develop my website to be more than a "splash page". I had new photography done. I designed new woven items. I worked on my social media presence. And I approached a friend to produce some videos which I will be able to use on my website. I began to think about other ways to sell my work and as a result I have representation in four galleries in different parts of the country. As an artist I am learning how to partner with these galleries and new relationships are forming. You can visit the websites of these galleries by going to my website, www.JudyConnorJones.com, and clicking on the Shows and Events page. If you live in or visit any of those places please support these small businesses. They work very hard to display and sell artist's work. Many of them have Facebook pages so you can Like them and get news feeds about what's happen in their gallery.

Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and the gift of seeing the "Possibilities" around you.
