CMSA; dear mature famous oil painter in the usa; i wonder if you would mind sending me a few bucks every now and again? I think it'd only be fair; after all, in this crazy upside down art world you and i have alot in common; we've both been painting our hearts out for about 40 years and we've both gotten pretty damn good at our craft. The difference between us is that you are the 1% of oil painters, who make a very good living whereas i, still mired in the mob of "emerging artists" , make literally pennies an hour for the exact same effort and discipline......so that being said; could you spare a few bucks every now and then? Sincerely, cynda ps. cvalle "dressed to kill"
