Alyson, thanks for sharing this with your readers. I’d love to hear other suggestions if anyone has them.
Thanks for sharing Alyson! I think it’s also good to encourage people to start slow. It can be daunting to look at the price of original art, but a collection doesn’t have to be built overnight. A while ago, I made a goal to buy at least one quality piece of original art per year, and by doing that I’m slowly building a collection I love!! My budget may vary from year to year, but I always make sure I buy something I love. Blogging has opened up a new market too – I’ve bought pieces from some artists that I never could have afforded from galleries – the daily painting trend is great for beginning collectors.
Thanks for the informative link. It warms my heart to see the renewed interest in collecting fine art. Thanks again! MikeV http://fineartathome.com
