I would earn an income painting using photographs I take as models. Then I would sell them to make a living. Art is my favorite thing to do. That is next to exploring nature, so I would combine the two by getting the images from outside.
This would change the world by putting a spin on photography. Then it would add beauty to the ordinary. Finally it would show the natural environment to people that might not notice otherwise.
I would start now by taking pictures of the world around me and then take photography classes for technique. Next I would paint daily as well as take painting and drawing classes. I would travel to find images of beauty in all corners of the world. While doing this I would get odd jobs to support myself. Then I would paint until I knew the works were just so. Afterwards I would advertise. This would start with asking different coffee shops around town to advertise as well as using online sources. After which I would set up my portfolio and apply to as many places as I could think that fit the work I did. Finally if at first I didn’t succeed I would try again.
