Artists and Income

I spoke with fellow artist Jerry Kortello for a while last night about art and the art business. He felt a reasonable expectation of income as an artist would be between $800 to $1200 dollars per month. He talked about Picasso’s humble beginnings. In his early days, Picasso brought a man back to his studio to show him his art. The man threw some money on the floor and took a painting. Van Gogh only ever sold one painting, but it was a very beautiful painting according to Jerry.
