My priority list when I was Zoe’s age:

  1. Do what I want (Be an Artist!)
  2. People throw money & kudos at me because they see my potential
  3. Have fun

My priority list 45 years later:

  1. Keep enjoying my independence
  2. Learn something new with every painting
  3. Cover my expenses and occasionally exceed them
  4. Come up with a fresh marketing scheme every day
  5. Teach others how
  6. Get over yourself Mernie
