well i dont want to read anyone’s else statement until i have expressed my own thoughts on this, then ill go back and read them, i think there are several things at work…i wonder if sometimes its just looking like an artist…or one day your a good craftsman, then someone comes along and pays a high price for your work..and suddenly its like ok..if i can sell it for that much…and then if the right people continue to buy at those prices…boom your an artist..ive seen guys on this site who have made pieces that are just as good as say maloof, how did he become an artist…how do tv star’s becomes so famous…a lot of the time its being in the right place and the right time…..keith you have made some fantastic work, and it should sell for a good price…i think ive made a few nice pieces and no one has offered to buy anything ive made…maybe if i color my hair or drive a weird car someone will think im a star…im rambling here…does it take a nice studio…filled with your work and probably in the right place…if you were on rodale drive in Hollywood,,,you might be an artist…i think folks like darrell pert and mark decou, and others here are artists to me…but the world doesnt think so..and at the end here, im like everyone else…not knowing what it takes to be an artist. my sister thinks im an artist….my mother thinks im an artist…now if they gave me lots of money does that seal the deal…not in my book..i think most of the wood workers on lumber jocks are artists..i really do..i consider what they do as art…i think you are an artist…now your probably not a well paid one…but that brings us back to square one…....ive heard people say they are a starving artist…..i guess i dont have any good answers…..grizz
