In collecting, none of us are entitled to anything, despite whatever luck we draw. I haven't won a lot of things from a lot of artists. Perhaps I'll lament from time to time about how much it hurts to miss out on something, but dragging the artist's name through the mud publicly; that's pretty bad form, because you know what? It's not their fault. It's the most we can ask that the work is even made available to us in the first place. And at a fair price! And at a set time and place! How much more of a level playing field can we be given, when there are hundreds of people vying for the same thing?
