It's hard adjusting to living on one income...  In one fell swoop I lost probably 60% of the "family" income...  Some major adjustments in going from dual income to single income!  And I just had to replace the transmission on my car... NO!!!!!!!!  And I hate credit card debt, I hate dipping into the line of credit.  How the hell do I stay above water???

Does anyone have any idea on how to best turn art into $?  Commissions, do they work?  What else is there to do?  Will signed, original photos sell on eBay?  Any ideas on how to get a show at an art gallery? Any other ideas?

I have an idea on how to do signed, exclusive one-off images that will never see the light of day again but still...  Any idea on how to catch the eye of a gallery where they won't absolutely fuck you and take the majority of the sale price?

Thankfully, I have an amazing, wonderful woman willing to help me!  Thank you Patricia!!!!  Anyone got any advice or contacts or thoughts that could help us?  Anything would be appreciated!
