Well if I could earn a living doing what I love the most than I would work as an artist. I love to draw, to paint, and experiment with different color materials, from oil pastels to soft pastels, and prismacolor color pencils. There is nothing that I love more than drawing, it soothes my soul. Honestly, me working as an artist wouldn’t change the world. All it would do is make me happy and maybe those who view my art. Nothing grand like ending world hunger or bringing peace to the world. But drawing is what I love. The steps I would take would be, drop everything I am doing and enroll in some art classes. Two, sell my work (I tend to keep everything I make). Finally, get the word out that I am now an artist.
Boy, working as an artist, drawing every day, painting now and then, making money off of it, well that would just be sweet! There’s nothing more that I want than that. Sure I’d like to discover a cure for cancer, I’d like to end world hunger and bring world peace. But I would also like to do what I love the most, and that is drawing.
