Art isn't really something you do for money until you actually start getting money. If that makes sense.
I actually remember my mother trying to explain what it meant to love something and compared it to my favorite book."You've read it a million times, it's dirty, old and barely keeping together. But you still keep it because you love it."
I always ask myself three questions before I think about pursuing something.
"Why do I do it?" "Do I want to improve?" "And would I still be doing it if I was alone and homeless in a ditch?"
If you can't answer the first question, then you should wait until you can. If the answer is "Yes." to the second question, then it's worth trying. And if the last question is a "No.", then it's just a dream. Not a passion.
If your goal in life is to make money (consistently), then frankly, Art is not the best answer. It's a field mostly meant for people who like the change and unpredictability it has and most importantly for those who genuinely want to pursue it's meaning.
If you can't see yourself creating art in a non-profitable environment, then it would be wise to label it as a hobby or interest and search for something more stable before you get into it.
Let it be known that I could also be terribly wrong about everything, but that's what I've gathered from my experience.
(Also, sorry for the long-ass, deep shit speech, I get excited ( ⓛ ω ⓛ *)
