Remember the famous story about Picasso: A woman tourist was out strolling when she spotted Picasso sketching outside a café in the back streets of pre-World War II Paris. She approached the artist and asked him to sketch her portrait and charge accordingly. In two minutes, there it was – an original Picasso. When she asked how much she owed him, Picasso replied “Five thousand Francs”. The woman then said politely “But it only took you a couple of minutes!” to which Picasso replied “No, it took me all my life”.
