When I think painter, I think--oh, he's pretty good. When I think artist, I think--oh, he's trying to make a living but just can't quite cut it.
I agree.
You don't here people call themselves "starving painter"


It really does come down to a personal preference. If Meryl Streep wanted me to call her a goldfish then I would. If that's how she interpreted her job, I'd readily respect it. If some honest nobody sculptor wanted me to call him an artist, I'd do it.
Oh yeah, when I hear someone say "he was one of the greatest artists of our time," when speaking of a painter, or artist, in my mind I'm automatically concluding: "Okay, so the guy had a shitty life, probably died trying to get somebody to appreciate his works, but only after he died did somebody realize 'Hey, this guy could actually do s**t!' and hence, must have been deserving of the 'greatest' title, given the years of suffering that was taken note of. Not." Since he no longer owns his works, and its profitable--of course he'd be the greatest.

I don't think she read either.
Then she would know I acknowledged that music is art
but a musician is not necessarily an artist.
A lot people like to skip past the first post, I guess.
