How does your economic reality effect your art?
Very much so. I'd rather buy paint and canvas, but pay the electric bill instead. Pay the phone instead , in case a sale comes up. Right now it's hard to create when your brushes are at the nub they are so old. It's affecting me hard. I have a room full of great prints , no one is buying.

Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Yes. I would be able to buy supplies and frame properly.
