On another topic: Over the last year I've been keeping a ledger of all my art expenses--supplies, books, membership fees, exhibition fees. Yesterday, a year after I started the ledger, I tallied the score. Between March 8th, 2014 and March 12th,2015, I spent $3,108.62 on my 'hobby.' That's a pretty penny for a retiree--pretty enough to make me think I might want to get out into the marketplace? Note that none of my expenditures concerned framing, acid free backing, mat board or non-glare glass (the glass I prefer for works on paper). Have any of you dared to tally how much your passion costs per year?
