5 reasons to buy art!

1.  Express your personality!  With all the artwork out there depicting many subjects - You are sure to find just the right piece for you.

2.  Art is an affordable way to change up your decor without a total room makeover - Give a fresh look to your Foyer or Kitchen with an affordable orignal or reproduction.

3.  Art makes a great investment!  You may never plan to sell your collection, but it can be passed on to later generations and be a part of your family history.  The most important rule is 'Buy what you like'.  A piece of art will reward you every time you look at it.

4.  The way it makes you feel.  You may find a piece that speaks to you.  It may remind you of a childhood memory and bring you joy or express an emotion you have been trying to express.  It may even make you feel like a million bucks for way less $$$.

5.  You can own something noone else in the world does.  Original art is one-of-a-kind!

I know this is a luxury in this economy, but even now we all need to treat ourselves once in a while.  Buying art directly from the artist can save you 30, 40 even 50% since there is no gallery mark-up.  Find a new artist and support them - their work will likely be very affordable.  Buying art on-line is another very affordable way to purchase art.  It is even delivered right to your door.  If you love a piece. look into buying a reproduction of it for a lower price.  Ask for art for Christmas!

Etsy has many talented artists selling their work for reaonable prices.  Visit my shop as an example.
