Financial Goal: $45,000 in gross profit from art sales.
Target: 12 Paintings/Month
These numbers give me a lot of flexibility. If I want to, I can paint 6 to 8 small plein air paintings one week, work 2 or 3 of them into larger pieces the next week, and start on a couple of larger studio pieces the next. Paintings done for gallery shows also count for these numbers of course, and will also guide me in the directions I need to go to be able to fulfill the gallery obligations and my own expectations at the same time. Breaking it down from such an abstract goal of "sell more art this year" into an actual number to strive for, then dividing that into manageable chunks, not only makes it feasible for me, but actually comforts me to know that the math adds up. Even in my art I'm a big fan of form and structure, so I guess it makes sense for me to seek that in other aspects of my life.
