Being a self-employed artist is probably the most difficult job really. You need to be highly motivated in the tasks you set for yourself. You need to be able to work on your inspirations and be totally focused on your targets. If your painting does not work first time you need to be able to learn from your experience and use what worked in another piece. Your ability to have confidence in your journey exploring your choice of subjects in paint is important. As regards doing workshops, bringing fun into the entire effort is the most important element to achieve. Your audiences will learn in a more sustainable way and produce drawings to be proud of.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

It urged people seeking employment to contact members of Nursing Home Ireland in their locality to see what opportunities were available. It said that details of jobs to be created in the sector had emerged from a survey of more than 400 private and voluntary nursing homes which was undertaken last month.

Nursing Homes Ireland said the job creation plans reflected increased demand for long-term residential care and comes during a period of severe economic pressure for private and voluntary nursing home providers.

Seek Feedback

  

We can't always see ourselves clearly. Seeking feedback involves seeing what we are doing, how we're doing it, and how that fits into the bigger picture - then, adjusting accordingly.
