I don't mind some modern art, LOVE art in general and I even have a bit of modern art in my office (which the company thankfully paid for). I'd have no problem paying a few hundred bucks or less for something I liked/felt complemented my decor. Maybe a bit more for the original but anything more than that is just silly for something I could do a decent rendition of myself or buy a print of.

People paying ludicrous sums for that stuff are in a whole other world though. I don't think us "regular folk" can even understand it. It's where an extreme love of art and conspicuous consumption meet.

Another from this artist (no disrespect intended, just trying to help here) - I’m calling this one Crime Scene. Possibly OJ’s house, but missing the detail (where’s the glove?). I know, I know - that’s the point....we’re supposed to interpret this as we will and scratch deeper than the surface. The detail is whatever we make it in our minds. But I feel ripped off. Incomplete, I’m giving it $37.95 on the Shopping Network. Please, let's help this artist complete his work, as he obviously didn't have time and had to go pick up the kids from daycare.

I got us started, guys.

I was thinking "hmm... That figure on the right kinda looks like someone important. Like a king sitting on his throne or something."

And then I looked at Deb's signature, and it hit me.

Still needs something more though.

Yeah - I never forgave Art for destroying that machine. Gene and Joe worked so hard on it.

No no. It's clearly a balding old Frankenstein with a severe issue with eczema.

Hold on a second! I think it might actually be a waving Alot enjoying its dinner of corn and apples.

It's actually a close up of the Mona Lisa and WAY more valuable than the original:
