I am still muddling through my taxes but after cataloging various categories of being an artist here are some interesting facts.  In 2009,  I entered 22 shows and spent $435.00 in entry fees.  A open studio weekend cost $200.00 and resulted in no sales.  Several paintings were donated to worthy causes and sold but I can deduct a pittance.  Still, I would not trade last year for a 9-5 and a steady paycheck.  I may not have had the huge sales but the feedback I received over the course of the year from a viewing public at many venues is worth every brushstroke.
