Eavesdropping at the Art Show

While I was in Florida, I went to an art show in Stuart. It was fun looking at the artists' work. I bought some earrings from an artisan.  But a conversation in one of the artist spaces captured my attention.  The artist was talking to potential clients.  While she was doing talking she flipped through some matted works on a table, pulled something out and said emphatically, 

"THIS is my REAL art."

The comment stuck with me. I thought about it a lot. Artists often have streams of work. Some streams are for making money, and others are dear to their heart.

Do you have streams of art?  Which do you consider to be your real art?  Can your money making art be your real art?

Lots to think about.

keep you from doing what you can do."
