Another art topic:
Art | Definition of Art by Merriam-Webster: "something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings. : works created by artists"
Can't get more subjective than that. So, here is how it works; "Walking her eel" is art. Why? It is art because I created it and I am an artist.
How do I know I am an "Artist"? I Know because I created "Walking her eel". If that seems to be circular logic, well yes, but it is not about logic. I know I am an artist because I have over 10,000 followers (on soon to be dead G+) and over 7,000,000 views. (Bragging is necessary, unfortunately)
So (again), as you can readily see, it all about audacity and acceptance. Might help some. if you do interesting work that is also well crafted. (no wonder artists are often considered to be egoists, or just plain crazy)
