Like, I'm just astonished that there are people out there who enjoy art enough to pay others to make it for them. I love art myself, hence why I'm on here, but that's because it's my lifelong hobby since I was a child and means a lot to me. I didn't think that other people who did not create art themselves would be willing to actually pay money to have art in their own lives.
I'm not saying I don't think artists deserve payment, I'm saying I'm surprised other people enjoy art enough to not merely appreciate what exists out there for free but to actually put out their own money to have a piece for themselves. I didn't think art mattered that much to people who don't actively create it themselves.
You get what I mean?
