Today I heard about a 92 year old man who, whilst a student at Dublin uni, was short of funds and had done a series of paintings of street life there but hadn't sold any. This year, 70 years later, he'd been asked by Irish/American visitors, nostalgic for the old Dublin of their youth, if he still had them and he sold the lot. AND he still paints!! So take heed, never ever give up!!!!!
