KAREN NORRIS 's comment on Find Your Style and Stick with It! Sigh . . .

Interesting. I find that artists that have a background in business get the connection between choosing to create something that sells vs. trying to sell something they've created that has no market value. My college art training did not include any classes on how to make a living selling art. It was mainly focused on creating something new and different than anyone else, even at the expense of teaching good fundamental skills. Marketing and selling was never addressed. I consider that a waste of an opportunity to prepare an artist for the real world.
