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?
