So apparently somebody in East TN sold a painting for like $400K. They had a reproduction of it in the Sentinel, and I'm like, OK, it's a nice painting, but $400,000? Really? I've never really gotten why stuff like that sells for so much money. I mean, I get that there's talent involved, it's just always seemed to me that eleventy billion people could produce something comparable (at least in my mind). And there's so much art out there that sells big and you look at it and think WTF is that? To which my coworker tried to say there's a lot of people who feel the same way about sports, to which I responded that I feel like a zillion people could paint something as good as what that painting is, but there's not a zillion people who can kick a 52-yd FG, and none of those people are here. Anybody else as mystified as I am? As an aside, obviously I'm not equating this painting with some obvious works done over the course of human history that pretty much everybody acknowledge as something spectacular, like the Sistine Chapel or David etc. I think there's some things that even the most right-brained people in the world (like me) can see the greatness of.
