Re: Feeling anxious about career, just wanted to share with you art business people

Thank you for respecting my judgement. I respect yours as well and do see your points as totally valid. However, I hardly advised Thinky into jumping off a cliff. I see she is doing what she feels what is best for her and respect her choice too.

at 33 it should be up to you... if you have no kids or a husband and no problems that mean you NEED a full time job then go the art route.

Re: Feeling anxious about career, just wanted to share with you art business people

I'm curious, and you didn't mention, what is this full-time job? Do you like it? The skills you learn at a job can help you in your art career depending on the job. You made it sound like this is your first full-time job in your life?

I agree with artyczar, however, if you want to be an artist, you've got to commit yourself. My advice would have been, to start out your full-time art career by moving to a place that has a large influx of tourists with money. This would also take care of criticism from family. Most holiday towns have a much stronger art market. I have several friends who make their living selling art to tourists. Those are about the only places you can make money from representational art consistently without being "well-known".
