Well my husband couldn't figure why I would want to buy someone else's art work when I paint myself and have so many of my own?
Art is a very personal choice and I feel if you really like someone else's work it is important to have their work around you for your own enjoyment and also for the inspiration it will give you each and every day.
I have just purchased a painting from an artist I have been following for at least three years! He has inspired me to do my work. Although our techniques are very. very different , his work still inspires me!
He has had a December sale and I saw a painting that I just had to have! It isn't huge but it is beautiful!
Even if you are an artist yourself, I believe it is important to have other art work around you from artists you really enjoy. Their energy is in their work and it will help you become inspired! :)
This picture you see here is just a picture I picked off of the internet and I have no idea where is came from. I believe it may be just a photo but I thought the look of it was very cool.
