“How do you do the painting while, at the same time, sell the painting?” For P.A. Nisbet, this has been one of his greatest challenges, balancing the need to create transformative works while managing the administrative side of his business and marketing his work. Many artists face the same problem, feeling that they are forced to choose one or the other. Nisbet notes that artists may have to choose to hone their craft over making money, but ultimately, he believes that this trade will be worth it in the end and will receive confirmation from the art industry through sales eventually.
