Would you be interested in buying a painting of a number between 1 and 1,000? According to a blog called--appropriate enough--OneThousandPaintings.com, more than 480 people have done just that. Why? No idea, but the prices are going up all the time.
The early shoppers got a 90 percent discount, but the prices were set to rise 10 percent with every 100 paintings sold. That means the next few paintings are rapidly approaching a $500 price tag.
