I just wish some of this new etsy talent would really become serious about refining and defining the 'fine art' category on etsy.

AS it stands, the art category is crammed with anything called art.

From painted shoes, to painted rocks, dustpans, and brooms. This makes it hard for 'fine art' artists to have their original paintings, prints, reproductions found on etsy via their search program.

The fine art artists are hoping someone will come along to save the day.
