1. Artists can be left brain thinkers as well as right brain. Even if all your life you have been very analytical and loved numbers and order there may still be a place for you in today’s dynamic art fields.
  2. Artists can make a living just on art. With all the new careers these days art can be a viable income source but you may need to incorporate some digital skills in the mix.
  3. If you love it, that is really all that matters. Don’t let others influence your choice of subject or medium too much, if you have a passion for your work others will notice and love it also.
  4. This one of those passions that you can continue to enjoy professionally and leisurely your entire life.
  5. As with anything you try, you will get better in time. So create, create, create.
