There are only two things you need to master to be a successful artist:
1. Creating remarkably
2. Finding the people who love your art and sharing
it with them.
Unfortunately, many people spend their entire careers learning to be great at either
the first thing or
the second thing. You've got to master both
*(Some artists focus on number one and partner with a gallery or spouse who excels at the second item. That combination works too since both items are mastered by the combined team.)
