Art Supplies : Why I Make Art to Make Money

The recent arrival of a goody box of new art supplies caused me to reflect on my passionate conviction that artists must absolutely strive to thrive without guilt or being subjected to accusations of "selling out". Making money from my art provides the necessary funds to invest in supplies, explore new mediums, take classes to hone my skill, all of which allow me to grow my business and professional career. Here's to thriving!
