My business card claims, over my name, that I am an author and artist. An artist? Well, I certainly mess around with art daily in one form or another. I love art. I even love lots of my art. In my view of the world that makes me an artist. But have I ever made a penny with my art? Maybe a dollar or two. Certainly not real money.
According to the world's view, that would make art a hobby only. So can I in good faith call myself an artist?
What do you think? Help me out, here. Am I an artist? Are you an artist? Does money have to be involved? Oh, this definition is so darn complicated!
