Putting a Value on Art

Check out this post on Artworld Salon blog. It takes a look at how subject matter affects the value of artwork. It reminds me of the hard reality I learned while taking quilt appraisal classes - on the open market, blue quilts are worth more than red, regardless of any other factor because a blue textile is easier for the collector to work into his or her home decorating scheme. Sheesh.

So, according to this particular list, I can keep water in my quilts, as long as it is calm, but if I'm going to include flowers, best they be roses. And if a dog wanders into the scene - better a purebred than a mongrel. Is that enough of a tease to get you to click on the link?
