Is Art a Luxury? (Scoutie Girl)
The question on Scoutie Girl is about art...is it a luxury? Not to me. And I don't think to most people. Even if one can't go to a concert or buy a CD, she can sing or beat out a rhythm; if I can't afford to buy a piece of art, I can trade one of my pieces for something I love. I just made a great trade this week: I received my frog oven mitt in the mail a few days ago! Thank you Inger! Check out her shop, ingermaaike.
I think people are creative and artistic even if they can't or don't want to exchange money for a "work of art". Perhaps it's the difference between living and just existing. Most people choose to live.
