It only sounds greedy because of the words chosen. My Mama raised us up with the phrase it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. If we were to say “I want my art to support me so I can make more art and leave that job I hate to someone who would love it” — well, that doesn’t sound greedy at all, does it?
Words, of course, are the most powerful drug known to Mankind. — Rudyard Kipling
