Art Feeds the Soul - and Stomach?

In advance of the new Caravaggio exhibit in Ottawa this summer, a sidewalk artist in the market area pleads for understanding of the role of art: Food for the soul, yes — but artists also need to eat!

Art feeds the soul... may it feed my stomach as well!! 
L'Art nourrit l'esprit... et que ça nourrisse ma bédaine!! 

The artist, right, collects coins, helped by his assistant

Bright sunshine mixed with heavy rain. To protect this amazing reproduction-in-progress, he had a tarp to stretch over it when clouds loomed near.

(And yes, I donated.)
