A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

This time the NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts) conference was about a subject dear to out hearts— "Money". We looked at the funding world, a guide to project budgets, a discussion on pricing your work, and an overview of sales. Even more interesting was the afternoon panel, where artists who make a living from their art discussed their process. It was a individual as the artists themselves, Eve Mosher, Jean Shin and John Zinsser. Perhaps my future is as a dog portraitist?
