Try selling photography.:( In fact, I was observing a jurying of an exhibition,
and two of the three jurors wanted to give a large purchase award to an artist
that did a digital painting. The third juror, a traditional painter and art
professor, said (and I quote exactly) "I can't. I just can't."

Lots of prejudice.
