What's good!! Easy. Its a painting that you like looking at more than once. It looks good up close and seperately looks great from afar.

Make what you like, but good art is good art to many. Art is the univeral language. There is a formula to help create good art. its the tools much like the paint brush.

And Flounder, yep, hes got the tools and put in that work.

Some excellent points, Tony. I, too, hate that word, "art". The inherant "problem" with art as a profession is that many people look upon it as an extravegance or luxury and is therefore either unattainable or expendable. We don't need artists the way we need doctors or accountants or firemen. They are not essential for most peoples' survival in the modern world. It's ironic, really, since all the true artists I know ultimately feel that producing art is necessary for their own survival, financial or otherwise.

Asking what is "good" art is like asking "What's the best song ever?" It's highly subjective, to say the least. Many people don't want to think about art and just want to be transported to a place or time or feeling, hence the success of the Wylands and Kincades. Personaly, I enjoy seeing the artists' thought process, the seed of their idea and how that idea gets expressed. I like that they made something with their hands and mind. I especially like it if I know or have met the artist - it personalizes the work for me and creates more of an attachment.
