Why Do You Buy Art (Or Not?)

It turns out, the market for original art changes from year to year.

As a full-time artist, I do a LOT of people-watching, analyzing, and observing. But it still has not become clear to me why visitors to one art festival will clear out the booths with their buying frenzy one year, and not buy a thing the next year.

Do you buy original art at art shows and festivals – or do you buy at galleries instead?

Why do you choose one over the other – and has your art buying changed in the past two to three years?

Floridaaaah!

We made it to our first show in 2016 in Dunedin Florida – our trailer had been stolen, broken into, everything dumped in the woods, and much of it destroyed, right before Christmas.

Nonetheless: Christmas was awesome, and it gave us at least a few days to be with family.

And, fortunately I have insurance that will hopefully cover most of the lost art and the damage to my show setup and other artwork.

So with beautiful weather under palm trees, life is still good.

Even with some rain and some flooding this afternoon, we still ate happy to have made it down here, even if the panels are crooked, the frames scratched, and some of the sheep a bit muddy – they still have the capacity to make people smile.
Which is nice.
