Some people are just untrainable LOL.
But in keeping with the continuing morphing of this thread I will weight in on the "art" subject and how it relates to me.
I am of the firm opinion that once I start charging $1500 for a 20x24 then my stuff will suddenly become "art". Especially if I con some well heeled mouthy types into buying the stuff. They will make sure everyone thinks my stuff is art just so they don't look stupid for paying so much for my crap.
