despite what the work might suggest to you, neither are the vast majority of fine artists.

You need to rationalize your way out of that one ... if people are dumb enough to buy what you're selling, they deserve to be ripped off. [funny]

If you have an advantage over someone, you are in power.. and abuse of power is evil.

It's bad to take advantage of someone!!! I know business will tell you otherwise.. but business is often filled with douche bags.

Fine Art is as much about the artist and their story as it is about the end product, in fact probably even more so.

It seems to me it isn't much different than the storytelling that occurs within the world of studio films, comic books, or video games. Except in the Fine Art world your selling your story. It isn't some kind of separate product removed from you that could have been created by a faceless corporation.

It's about applying extraordinary invention to your work that can uniquely tell that story. Not all inventions are a successes in terms of reaching people with what you want to express, but it is still about that process. Whether it be sculpting a fat Tooth Fairy out of children's discarded milk teeth held together with superglue mixed with lard, or painting a multi-story bull's-eye on the Empire State Building on September 12, 2001 (probably not a good idea). If your invention works, it sells and/or is remembered by history. If not, well, your work gets referenced in posts like this one.

Either way, it's all about reaching people with what you have to say, Fine Art or not. Clearly something about the little girl's art reached people, and made them care about her work. Whether it was through her story or the work itself.

Some of us may never have so many care about what it is we do in our entire lives. But hey, that's the risk you take in being an artist.
