And likewise, the vast majority of my jobs have been in code maintenance: not a sexy image there, but really, most of life is routine. That doesn't mean it has to be boring (although it usually is: I work with Java).
And too, I don't see much artful in most code I've written and/or maintained. Rather the opposite: unless a system was designed "well" (for some value of "well"), I'm quite wary of it and worried about it.
