How To Create the Perfect Painting

Sorry Guys and Gals, there is no such thing as the perfect painting.
Mostly beauty and aesthetics are in the eyes of the viewer and that viewpoint depends very much on education, lifestyle, interests, income (yeah income - see the nouveau riche and their changing taste in decor when the big dineros roll in.)
Who can claim they actually KNOW it is "perfect a painting?" An art gallery owner along Fifth Avenue, NY? I don't think so. Who was it who said "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?"
Perhaps when you see miles of people queuing up to see a Picasso exhibition, there must be something pretty good, right? But are these even bordering on perfection?
That brings me to another question: What is great art? In my opinion, great art has quite an emotional impact on the viewer.
You've probably looked at a painting you did not like very much but could not put your finger on it. It just did not look correct or there was something missing.
With a knowledge of art and painting you'd would spot what was not quite correct or what changes needed to be made.
So there is no such thing as perfect art, opinions are purely subjective.
