I believe many people would have given up on their art making practice if they were me. Based on economics, it has been a losing proposition for years.
That hasn't altered my passion or energy level in the slightest bit. Some things are not about money. I enjoy golf and tennis but I'm not going to try to make a living at it. Don't get me wrong, I jump for joy after every sale I get. I'm just not counting on paying all my bills through my art sales.
I will continue to create and share my art as long as I am physically able to and I hope that is for a long time to come. I'm glad you take the time to read and comment on my art journey. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement.
