Re: I'm in the wrong business.

Kraellin,

What you said is brilliant observation and right on point. At the end of the day what is required is for people with money to value your work enough to buy it at high prices. That takes exposure among them, and at the highest dollar amount level it requires powerful, well-connected sponsors. Those circles are invitation-only so you need someone inside, a 'member' if you will, to invite you in.

The good news is that there is still room for good success outside that 'club'. But marketing yourself well (and getting a few good breaks at key times) is still the key to succeeding well.

Repairman,

Indeed that is a sad commentary on our times. But it shows the difference between the people that own those stately homes and those who rescue those homes in crises like this. Keeping such a divide between that level of homeowners and the less affluent really backfired that time But realistically in this day and age those stately homeowners' kids if told the same thing might have grabbed their X-Boxes and Wii games and left the priceless paintings to burn
