I don't know Art, but I know what I like.

As a prairie dweller, I have to say yey for wheat weaving, I have seen some most beautiful pieces.

The kind the grands used to leave on the walls if they got ahold of a crayon or marker.

I guess if you came and looked around my home you might think that my favourite type of art work is iron work. I never thought of it before, but yes, I have a number of pieces of iron work both inside the house and in the yard. Almost every room has a piece both large and small.

My favorite is dogs playing poker on Elvis, on velvet.

As an artist, I have to say my own work...haha not really (even though I do say the paintings look pretty nice hanging on my walls). I enjoy any art form that shows passion and emotion. If I feel something while viewing, listening, or participating, it is successful art in my eyes.

At 16 months our granddaughter was given (supervised) red, blue and yellow finger paints. The resulting impressionist mayhem is titled "The Jayhawk" and is proudly displayed on our wall.

Very nice, thanks for the link.

"Crowded Mind" is cool. So are the others, but I like this one and "Sweet Potatoes" for some reason. :-)

Ok, I was in a hurry, I meant "that doesn't cost" me any money.

The best art is beautiful and technically masterful.

The worst art is ugly, looks thrown together, and has an accompanying description filled with pretentious art jargon.

Below a broken plastic mickey mouse cup: "This found object piece activates the experiencer's sense of self-boundaries between knowingness and active-being in a macédoine of culture fiction."

Generally, abstract expressionism. Specifically, Kandinsky.

Mother Natures's art, just go out and look around.

The kind that is self suficient and does not beg the tax payers for money so the artists can put off getting a real job.

A "real" job? I work 50-60 hours a week, pay my own health insurance, and don't have either vacation, or sick leave. I do have a "real" job and it's a hell of a lot of work.
