I am a buyer too..but I am not in the ballpark of cash flow to be able to buy my favorite artists' work lately. I have bought a few though. What I do sometimes, is swap. I like that even better, solves 2 problems. If I sell one, doesn't mean I get to spend the funds on more art! So when I swap, it gets one of mine out the door and I get to enjoy a piece I am admiring. I like my surroundings to keep changing so I rearrange a lot.
Art, art, art! Why do we love it so?
