Why do some artists become venerated during their own lifetime and others remain starving artists only to find fame and fortune for their artwork after they die? Let’s look at two examples.

Indie Artists Club is a new group on the web that is promoting outstandingly clever artists. These are artists who are not only clever enough to produce outstanding works of art, but additionally they are clever enough to promote their art into a method of supporting themselves.
Almost everyone is an artist in some way.

The artist tries to communicate to the viewer, and if it is a good work of art, the artist’s technical skills are up to a point where the viewer understands the communication.
