Three Common Questions Artists Encounter

Recently I heard John McCormick give a talk about his life as a painter. He and his wife had a successful studio backdrop business from 1984 to 1999. His client list included Disney Studios, HBO, Apple Computers, Lucasfilm, MTV, the Grateful Dead and the San Francisco 49ers.
I like the answers McCormick shared to three questions he is usually asked when he says he’s an artist:
1. Is it hard to make a living as an artist? Only if you don’t belong there.
2. Do you make a living as an artist? You’ll have to talk to my accountant.
3. Are you famous? My two sons think so!
You can see McCormick’s work at www.johnmccormick.com.
