I may sound a little snipy here but i feel strongly about it. Maybe you don't have a clear grasp on who you what? you are working on it right? that's what's important there-and it doens't have to be precise, just as long as you can set boundries.

Maybe you can make money with art maybe not but money does not an artist make.
And though it doesn't suprise me that someone is telling you what you are or aren't DON'T you actually let that make your decision for you! OK!??!!!!
You decide, Not your T. and if you want to make splatter paintings and sell them on the street corner for $10 that Your life to do with as you want.

And yes, paints Can be expensive. two suggestions, start out with some other medium. even try colored pencil, pastels (which can also be a little pricey), conté (my fav), or chalk. just to play with color.
Tip: Whatever you decide DON'T buy supplies from an "art" store if you can avoid it-So much more expensive. go to a craft or hardware store if you can. heck go to target or walmart to see what they may have. i do think the most $$ thing are the brushes, but i think someone else mentioned buy cheaper brushes at least 2 or 3 to get you started, to see if you even like acrylics. if you do decide paint is the way to go i prefer to stretch my own canvas rather than purchase pre-made and Don't use Gesso from art store, just go buy primer from paint store (Lowe's or something.)
And Never stop expressing what you feel. Show your passion, your emotion through your art. So even if it doens't sell you will Never be ashamed of you's you.
Best Wishes.
