How does your economic reality effect your art?
I get many visitors to website or studio who think that because my work is colorful and narrative that my life must therefore be fun and carefree...but I worry since I am a single parent that my disabled son will have a very hard life without me and I therefore I must make art that supplies us a home and food. But if I was a bit more stable in regards to sales I could provide for us and still have some time and energy to make larger more experimental works that will be harder to find an audience for..but that I FEEL is more expressive.
