A working class artist has to do many things to make a living. If you are only doing one thing, you will have a somewhat better chance of being famous, but it is also much more likely that art will be a hobby, not a living.
I have given up painting. Well, not exactly. Instead, I’ve spent more time working on portraits and caricature sketches of people. It’s a good party and event skill, but sometimes I lose track of what I’m doing. I don’t want to forget how to do these things.
