Where do you buy art? Be it photographs, or paintings, or books? Online? In-person? When was the last time you did and did you spend a lot? Did you get your money's worth?
I prefer to buy my artwork directly from the artists. This often means meeting them at an art fair or at the merch booth of a concert. Lately, as I've been meeting more young artists who are early in their careers, I've been commissioning new pieces that fill a need in my life. I consider this money well spent, as I'm supporting an artist and also getting something pretty to show off.
