Artists/Craftsmen can't make a living selling their art.
If it costs a lot, it must be good art.
If it doesn't cost a lot, it must not be good art.
It just takes "talent" to make good art.
You can always buy the piece later.
You can find the same thing at Target/Walmart/Macy's/a garage sale.
Your child/grandmother/kitty cat/ could make something just like that.
Art is a luxury.
Art can't be useful or functional.
If it's big and ugly, it's gotta be art.
