Working artist


Did you make a painting or sculpture today? If not why not? Is there something that keeps you from your love of art?

I haven't made a new sculpture for some time. I've been working to make enough money to pay my bills. I am a skilled craftsman and have found that it is easier to do carpentry for others than sit in my house and sculpt. This is not what I went to college and grad school to become. The dreams of my teens have past. Is this my fault or am I a product of a culture that has lost interest in a form of art? My family can't support me and I seem to have few friends. Those that are close don't buy art.

What is success without payment?
