Past the halfway marker: where are you with 12 in ’12?

At the St Vincent Monastery Run Wetlands by Amie R. Gillingham
Since it’s my small son’s birthday today, I will indulge in sharing my entry from last month’s Wildflower exhibit. Thank you for awarding it an honorable mention in the Cloud Votes!

The 12 in ’12 Challenge, started back in January, has been a hot topic of conversation lately on the EBSQ Member Forums.  So I thought now might be a good time for an official (ish) pulse check. Where are you in your progress. Did you enter the shows you hoped you would back in January? Are you still going strong, or losing steam?

I also took the challenge. So far, I’ve entered entered 6 shows with 9-total entries. Some of it has been new work executed for the show, but I admit I pulled a couple from my archives, too.  I was hoping to enter more than just photography and actually get some painting and drawing done, but my Muse has been off holiday, apparently.  Maybe I can lure her home with this month’s Pointillism exhibit

Ready to jump into the fray or get back on track? Here’s what’s left in 2012:

August:
Cats & Dogs
FOTM: Prairie Plants
Plein Air: Water

September:
Wild Birds
FOTM: Berries & Fruit
Autumn

October:
Owls
FOTM: Carnivorous Plants
Think Pink (to Benefit Breast Cancer Research)

November:
Tortoises & Hares
FOTM: Leaves & Fronds

December:
Holiday Pets
FOTM: Botanical Wreaths
Zombie Apocalypse (ends 21 December 2012, with no voting since the world will have ended, obviously)
11th Annual Better Late Than Never Show

So–16 more exhibition opportunities. Are you in? Are you IN?

Let’s do this thing!

  1. Oh man…I was on track for several months, then I fell off. I am going to TRY to get back on the horse but that means I will need to double up on a couple of months.

  2. I’m holding strong! I’ve been doing one show a month to keep up. This month I may have to duck out of the shows, but I’ll make it up with two shows in another month.
