Lights off, spotlight on

I know a lot of people are struggling to make ends meet, work your pretty little buttocks off and still have some days left when money runs out. But I'd like to ask recognition for artists, photographers and designers who have been struggling since, well forever. The creative souls who feel they are on this planet to bring beauty in every day life. But that doesn't pay the bills.
We -creatives, artists- find it hard sometimes to market ourselves. We love making, creating, but selling... hmm that's not so much in our dictionary. While we should have it on our priority list, as how else are we going to make a living from what we love?! To take 'the plunge' and become a full time artist is not easy. No fixed paycheck, but plenty of fixed bills. I'd like to dedicate this post to one of those artists who is brave enough to 'take the plunge'.
