About Art (a humble essay) by Frolic Mills

Take for example the painting 'The Scream' by Edward Munch. I asked many of my friends if they thought that was a beautiful image and ALL said no, I asked them if they thought it had a high level of technical expertise and they again said no. What I didn't tell them was that this painting just set a new record for the latest price for a piece of artwork ever sold when Edward Munch’s “The Scream” went for $119.9 million to an unidentified buyer.  Drawn in 1895, ‘The Scream’ is the artist’s most famous work and one of the most recognizable works in all art. It also stands for a symbol of human anxiety.  Perhaps in this case, it is the message which makes this painting valuable.

About Art (a humble essay)

Art is one of those words that has millions of definitions that yet leave you wondering what art really is.

Here are some samples:

the Irish Art Encyclopedia: “Art is created when an artist creates a beautiful object, or produces a stimulating experience that is considered by his audience to have artistic merit.”

The Side Effects of My Second Life

I was having a conversation about three weeks ago with Rusch Raymaker concerning random attacks made on us both via an anonymous website. I asked Rusch what we were doing that prompted so much hatred from a few anonymous people. It’s funny how some people make us look like two raging warriors against each other. The fact is we have a very cordial relationship. Rusch simply said, “Frolic, make yourself happy. Love and light will lead the way.”

Today for some reason, I remembered this comment and I started to think about it. What will I be left with when SL closes?  Beautiful memories and a great experience is the best answer I am able to come up with.

Is it worth it?  Oh yes, it is!
