    Should artists be paid a living wage?

    What amount should they be paid? Who would decide if they were a real artist? Should their be any volume requirements set for # of pieces of work per month/year?

    Seems like as good a time as any to bring up this topic as some people seem to be able to define what a "real" artist is and could serve on the boards.
    There are some sane answers but being the DUmp...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    This stuff is hilarious. We could turn it into a book. Something to read on the can

    I just knocked out 17 paintings while I was reading that thread. Check please.

    I honestly cannot even comprehend some of the things that come out of their heads.

    Ug. I had forgotten about that.

    Did anyone bother to ask Nancy how these suddenly out of work (by choice) artists are going to make their rent? Or eat? /rhetorical
