Happy New Year!!!

Hello everyone, thank you for always submitting great artworks! Thanks to your submissions this group really is growing into a beautiful and interesting group, full of different and original calligraphy works.

I've just had a little "discussion" with one of our members here, who wanted to submit her certificate of a Japanese calligraphy copying dan she achieved. But, obviously, not being an artwork, I declined it, explaining to her that it wasn't a calligraphy artwork. I thought I'd share with you guys our little conversation.
This is what she replied:

"HA! HA! I'm aware this is not an artwork but I want the world to know what a DAN is, so they won't be stolen by people with out a DAN. In Japan, as you know, it should be a great shame selling your calligraphy or your sumie paingings without a DAN. The comunity of DA should begin to know about this. Don't you think so? They are no fools and they don't deserve to be treated as such."'s very kind of her to express her views, but I actually don't see her point at all. Here's what I replied:

"Sure, please calm down:)
This is your opinion, and you're fully entitled to express it. Why do you care so much about what other people do anyway? I think you're a bit confused and upset, anyone's free to buy any artwork they like.
And, I was wondering, why are you so sure that you're the only one with a dan?:) Maybe other artists have it but don't feel the need to show it off like you do. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, this is where everyone can show their art.
Your showing off seems to be miles away from a Japanese Calligrapher's mentality anyway. Maybe you should focus more on what you're doing and care less about other artists?:giggle:
Thank you very much for expressing your thoughts,

I honestly think anyone is free to appreciate and buy anything they like, no one HAS TO buy anything. This is what Art and DeviantART is about, in my opinion. Just because you have a certificate and you show it off to the world, it doesn't mean you're the only one to have the right to show and sell your works, in my point of view. Or should we ban anyone who hasn't got/doesn't show off a certificate or a degree? That just doesn't make any sense. :S

Sorry for the rant, I just wanted to share this thought:iconfloatingheartplz:

Thank you!
