Year's End-What is your Challenge/Vision?

It seems appropriate that I am finishing up one challenge, the Sketchbook Project, and launching a new one, my Mid-Century Challenge at this time. This is my final post for 2010, unless something wildly exciting happens between now and Saturday. You never know...
Here are two oil sketches from my Sketchbook Project. I have two left to go and might even get a bonus two in before the week is out.
In between painting the sketches, I am working on my vision board for 2011. I have some big visions to put up!
If you have been reading these posts, you have probably seen the personal challenge I put up in the previous post. I have a few better ideas to add to phase 2 but I will mention those later.
I would like to ask all of you, What is your personal challenge for 2011? I would love to hear about it, big or small. If you got a challenge going, or are thinking of getting one going, please mention it in the comments section.
I would also love to see any vision boards you are willing to share. Please post a link in the comments section as well. I will be posting mine here to share with others.
One final note on the Sketchbook Project, I plan to put a slideshow of the pages on this blog. It will also be touring the country with the other entries. I will have more info on that later. I am also going to try to get a video, related to my sketchbook up, weather permitting. I haven't posted a slideshow or video on my blog before so we shall see how it works.
Have a wonderful and safe New Year! 2011 is going to be amazing (hopefully amazingly good), I just feel it in my bones.
See you all next year and don't be shy about sharing your challenges and visions!
-Renee

One of my challenges for the coming year is to continue to get to know you. Your vision of yourself as an artist and your commitment to doing your work is showing me the way. This sketchbook project and the opportunity to communicate with you along the way has been an inspiration in a profound way. I'm so grateful to have met you. My vision for this year is to continue to devote more time to being creative.

Hi Susan! Thanks so very much for your kind words, and for posting your vision. Sometimes it can be a challenge to put it out there publicly.
We all learn from each other and I am certainly no different there. I love the happy "coincidence" that brought us together.
See you soon!

Love the title of your blog! How true, art=life. :-)

I love your challenge idea. And those sketches are beautiful. I love the colors and the movement of the waves. :) I don't know what my challenge should be, but I'm setting a goal to draw from life more. Happy New year to you!

Happy New Year!
Thanks art2cee2 for the comment on my title. My husband had a button that read "music=life" he being a musician. I thought "art=life" quite appropriate too!
Thank you Crystal as well. I love drawing from life even though it isn't always practical. Your water colors of children and animals are very beautiful. I know those two subjects are also the hardest to draw from life as they never sit still for long!
