Art as an Investment

I've always heard that you should always buy the art you love, not solely as a possible future investment. Tonight's news featured an interesting piece about a woman who purchased a small painting at a very reasonable. The artist was "discovered" and now her modest purchase is worth a small fortune. I know this is the exception but still it's nice to know that the original Booth hanging on your wall may be worth a cool million someday. It's nice to dream!

Here is the link to As Investments Sink, Art Looks More Beautiful.

I'll be moving closer to my husband's work soon. Finding a new home with a great studio space was a major priority for me. I think we found the perfect home in China Spring, Texas. I'll miss all my great art gal pals but I know that I'll be just down the road a piece and will see them often. It'll be nice to get back into the studio again and back to painting everyday.

Here's the link to my website. I still have several pieces available. Contact me for more information.

What is Art???

I found this hilarious little YouTube on my gallery's blog. Mike at art251 has a great, warped British sense of humor. I needed a good laugh and thought that all you art "critics" would get a kick out of this one.

I've been out of my studio for the last few weeks because we are in the process of selling our home. Having to keep the house in model perfect condition all the time makes it difficult to cut loose in the studio. I put all my paints neatly back on the shelves, cleared off my work table and vacuumed the floor. The place looks sterile right now. I doubt there are too many potential buyers out there that are searching for studio space. So, I have to make it look like it can be used as a bonus room or a teenager's hideaway.

We were very fortunate to find a great home out in the country with a huge, sunny room that will make a wonderful studio. I can feel those creative juices starting to flow just thinking about it!
