Is it right to be the Artist in the Garret or do we have to be a little more commercial in our creative endeavours?
To suffer for ones art has long since been taken for granted as being the only way to succeed. Monetary gain for any kind of spiritual or creative endeavour can to some be outrageous and unforgivable. Those who demand high prices are frowned upon for being too money orientated as if they are sullying the profession by prostituting their own style and talents. Creating for financial gain is not considered to be the acceptable primary directive as we should all be purists in heart and mind manifesting our art for the satisfaction of being able to express ourselves through our chosen medium.
