Art and Money

Is ART a material that is put up for sale?

Given the economic state of this time, are artists going back to poverty and unemployment?

Will artists start changing what they are creating in order to sell their work?

The Black Vase, detail

I haven't sold anything of mine in the last 3 years. I have had interest at many exhibits but no sales. I have looked at textile art that has sold. Many of those pieces are 'pretty'. I don't want to make pretty things. I want to make what I want to make.

This is as pretty as I get!

The Black Vase is for a show in Viterbo, Italy.
The theme of the event is ROSES.
I used H. Matisse' work as inspiration

British artist Damien Hirst's (Spot Art) business manager told him, "Be careful not to chase the money with the art but to chase the art with the money."
