February 28, 2011. My last post got me thinking. What if Van Gogh worked at Burger King? Would he offer his paintings at discount prices? I bet he would. I'm sure there were a lot of people in his time who would've put more value on a cheeseburger than one of his paintings. Those art critics in his time had no idea how important those sunflowers would some day become. It's amazing that Van Gogh sold only one painting in his lifetime. His contemporaries had no idea the worth of those canvases stacked in his brother's house. So there's the lesson. Look beyond what the pop culture tells you has value. It's often the most overlooked things that hold the most eternal worth.
