So, artful means ‘wily and adroit’ to me, because that’s the real definition that was drilled into me in my education but since so many people use it to mean ‘performed artistically’ that it’s become accepted as the primary meaning WITHIN MY LIFETIME .... well it’s causing me to have to grind to a halt mid-assumption quite often while listening to others speak. There aren’t many words that have flipped on a dime during my lifetime.
