A stubborn woman refuses to make an 180,000,000% profit based on her need to feel validated by the art world. She likes all this attention doesn't she? Ultimately, if she had allowed an independent analysis, she might have had her answer, but at this point, I don't think she could handle the possibility that's she's been suckered by a pair of unscrupulous con men who share a stake in the painting's value. If she enlisted the aid of someone other than these two ex-con's as her experts, then I would have more sympathy for her.
Oh well, at least the local country singer wrote a song about her and she drank some beer with her friends at the bar. It doesn't get any better than that, does it?
