Flipping houses for a living is understood best by comparing it to concepts that are similar, but are of a different subject. Art is a subject that is different, yes, but amazingly similar, for the process of change and creation in art is much like the process we go through when we flip houses. The house flipping project is similar to a painting canvass needing a painter. The canvass alone will inspire no one. But give a skilled and artistic painter some brushes and paint...and the blank canvass, and there will soon be something to look at and talk about.
