What is Art?

Who determines what is art? This is a question that has been raging for years. Decades. Maybe even longer. Well, after viewing some sites (whom I won’t name) that claim to have art on display I now know the answer. It’s the so-called artist. It’s people with enough balls to say “What I have created is art!” and the rest of us look at it and tilt our heads to the side and squint and finally say, “Why yes, it does have some interesting qualities. You are right. It’s art.”

So from here on out, I’m going to be that ballsy person. As a photographer, as a card maker, as a drawer, as a painter and yes, even as a gardener. I’m going to create and I’m going to shove it under your nose and say “I have created art! Behold!” and you had better tilt your head to the side and squint and then declare right back “Why yes, you are right, that IS art!”

Are we clear? Good.
