As an artist I have always been responsible for my art life.
I like being in charge of my work and my PR.
I learned early that a real artist has to be in charge of their own well being.
New artists think that someone will rescue them and make them them rich and famous, that won't happen. Sorry to have to say that , but that is the way real art life is.
ME, I plan to ARTON no matter what happens. This ain't no dress rehersal.
Real artists are personally responsible.
