Is it praise to the artist to appreciate the art?
Why wouldn’t it?
Quick answer: yes. That has played a big part in several big theological discussions I’ve been in . . . I’m sure there are more implications to it as well.
quick opinionated answer:
praise is an expression. appreciation is a recognition. If you express your recognition, then yes it is praise.
and how does that spell beowulf?I can’t fit my syntax around your creativity.
Why must you distort even the spelling so? Tsk tsk tsk.
Wow, you were up late tonight. I hope that you aren’t exhausted today…. 😛
I think I agree with Rediscover.
Praise to their talent and work, definitely. To the person as a whole, not necessarily.
