I am a musical artist of sorts…I help finance my retirement by playing the didgeridoo (yes it’s weird, but someone has to do it). I work my butt off playing on the streets of a north Florida tourist area for tips, give lessons, play, make and sell didgeridoos at Farmers Markets and craft shows and backup local musicians when I can. I know a lot of visual artists, painters, sculptors, etc, that work the streets, give lessons and do markets to make a living off their work so if an artist cannot be self-supporting there is no excuse except laziness or perhaps creating such a poor product that nobody wants it.
I discovered years ago that there are many mute, inglorious Miltons out there. I have heard amazing singers at camp sing a longs, read great novels found in bargain bins, seen mind blowing paintings in art fair kiosks. Fame and fortune are a crapshoot, and there are a lot of players.

Become the 21st century Norman Rockwell. Paint a thankgiving dinner scene of grandma serving Turkey TV dinners, beer and everyone at the table w a cellphone in their ears. Every one at the table wearing a hoodie. A window in the background w cracked bullet holes and outside a whore bending over in a car window of a Democrat senator………..
And paint it all on velvet!!!!!!

I work real hard making artistic piles of Stuff! And I even won a Prize!!
