If you have children, or spend time with little ones, you will understand the delight that they have when producing their very own artworks for you to admire. Their enthusiasm as they show you their finished piece (and the admiration that they receive for their creation) often means that said artworks are either displayed proudly on the fridge, or hung up in a prominent wall space where they can receive further approval from other viewers. Usually the recipient of the artwork is a parent, grandparent or close family member, and, while some may display the artwork because they love and respect the child and their creation, others only do it out of a sense of obligation.
