Dang...I hope your eyes are OK now. I had no idea my art could do that
On the 'making money' part...I had high hopes after coming out of a very good art school, but then I married, had kids, watched them grow from
little gnomes to men, sent them to university, etc, etc.
That all took money which I had no hope of making from painting, so I knuckled down and got a 'day job' to pay for it all. 36 years later, I have
managed to keep at it and now I'm retired...
Maybe now I can think about making it my second career. In fact, my first 'real' show is scheduled for July 2007 and I'm working on a series of
paintings just for that.
The one I'm working on right now is surprising even me. It's amazing how quickly we improve when we put all our concentration into one thing.
