I paint....... so for me it's a little different ...I have bought art from other artist's, but the one's I really liked were too expensive.
I do get very sad, when I can't buy that one painting that has touched my heart.
Once my son and I went to a sale, well it was more an auction of all kinds of furniture from offices.
I saw in the corner of my eye, a lot of painting standing to one side.
I asked how much?
They told me some crazy cheep price, and I went to find my son.
I said to him...''Son you MUST BUY these paintings''!!
I know your not into art, but trust me!
We sold them, and his bank account increased by thousands.
Not often. My sister-in-law is a prolific artist and she gifts us with beautiful pieces whenever she comes to stay (she lives in LA, so it's not that often). In between visits, I create my own works to grace our walls.
