April 2019 Summary: 05/01/19

Reading report

April was busy with reading picture books to brainstorm art ideas for the summer camp I'm running in July. I also taught more classes at the gallery and spent time on a new series of paintings which I'm collectively calling "Mini Art." I've completed three paintings and have begun a fourth. I need to finish the fourth soon in order to put them together in a shadow box to enter in the members show.

My reading was almost evenly divided between personal collection, research, and library books. Six of the ten library books I read were for my summer art camp. These six are also why I missed my diversity reading goal for the month.

Like March, I read 31 books. If I removed the six art camp books, I would have just met my diversity reading goal. I'm not going to do that. What I should have done instead is look for diverse authors. If I read more books for art camp, I will do this. My reviews, however did meet the goal, with eighteen being by diverse authors or featuring diverse characters.

With three months of 2019 complete, I still have 10 reviews from 2016 reviews to post. That's down from last month's 11. My 2017 reviews are down to 12 from 14. I have 47 reviews remaining from 2018, down from 54, and 80, up from 51, now from 2019.
