Thank You Maggie,
        For the many of us who create because we love it and also
teach because we love that too. Perhaps we can instill in our young
students our passion for art. There is more to making art than
making a living doing it. More power to those few who have been
able to earn a few bucks at it as well. It is a very competitive
market out there. I'm trying to grow with my watercolors since I
retired from teaching. I suspect I'll be forever trying to grow.
