What is the best thing about being an artist?

When asked the question, what is the best thing about being an artist I would have to answer with a cliché “Being able to work at what you love doing”, but it is the truth. Much of the time I am frustrated, broke, and disillusioned, but I get to travel and paint in beautiful places, meet, and paint interesting people, and interpret the scenes and sensations through my paintings. Several years ago, I was painting in the snow along the Pecos River in northern New Mexico with a dear friend, it was a beautiful day, a beautiful place, and the painting was going well. I can remember saying to myself” it doesn’t get much better than this.” That says it all!
