The final push of the year is upon us, and for many this can be the busiest season of them all. For artists, it is important to find ways to balance the demands of the holidays with your practice and career, and you must begin planning – if you have not already – for what’s to come in 2023. Line ’em up, as they say. Seek out opportunities to grow and enrich yourself, your work and your career. Never stop moving. As an independent artist, it is your job to keep that momentum up.
