GIRL ORDERING COFFEE

This is not a real drawing. I did it in 15 seconds in Painter because I realized I hadn't posted anything today. This represents a blatant lack of respect for my audience, and I wouldn't blame you if you left and never returned. This isn't art. But on the other hand, it raises the question, What Is Art? Does a certain amount of time have to be involved? Is a certain serious intent on the part of the artist required? Could I, while obviously not caring what I'm doing, accidentally create art? Who's to decide that? Who's the judge, the arbiter? Should I put it to a vote? Pay a local curator for their opinion, maybe pay them generously, something that might be considered a windfall? Sell it to a dimwitted millionaire? Well, at least I've got a blog entry here. That's what counts.
