A question of worth
This painting featured on the Antiques Road Show was appraised for $75,000. The appraiser marveled at how the artist used creative talents by mixing sand in the paint to create a texture within the circle. So how does a painting get to be worth so much?
It has to have a following, most likely in this case, artificially created by very experienced and smart businessmen and gallery owner who already has a very strong following and reputation. If not that, I believe this painting would fit into a hobbyist category.
