Hi Marisa,

I got to be honest with you – its a tough business to be in. In my situation I survive as an artist because I work in different fields of art such as Graphic Design besides creating paintings. This allows me to stay financially sound when one of the elements does not bring enough to the table. I am not trying to discourage you but just want you to be aware of this. Another important thing to mention is that you must have passion to create art before trying to make a living off it. So there it is. Other than that it’s a good ride!
Thank you!
Peter
