There is a story about an author and a teacher. The author writes: “The room had blue curtains”. The reviewer writes: “The author is expressing the depression the character feels.” The author writes: “The curtains are effing blue!”.

So art is in the eye of the beholder, or possibly in the eye of the artist, who hopes someone coughs up cash to support the artist’s art.

This plane and remote control kicked around Ebay for a very long time, being relisted over and over. Somewhere, the artiture gods are laughing.
