collecting art

I came across another artist awhile back that really took my breath away—Michelle Armas. I really want one of her paintings on my wall some day. They are stunning! Her work is so special to me that an art print would not quite cut it.

In only a few cases have I felt that investing in the original piece of art is worth it. Mark Rothko is another example of an artist that I would prefer an original. Don’t get me wrong I love art prints. In the past I have happily purchased them from Studio Violet, the Black Apple, Sandra Juto, Three Fish Studios and Ashley G. I was gifted two amazing pieces from my friend Jason and unfortunately don’t really have any more wall space in the cottage (because there are so many windows!) but I wish that I did. I am a very visual person and am always inspired by the art in my home.
