Why Do People Buy Art?

I added a little poll to the right here asking, "Why do you buy art?"  I'm putting the question in my newsletter and wanted a place for readers to answer.

I hope you will feel free to answer, too.  It is a survey just for fun, certainly not scientific.

If you would like to see what I write in my occasional newsletters, sign up on the right, too.  You can also click there and see previous newsletters.  This next one should come out tomorrow.  Yikes, I'd better get with it, hadn't I?

This painting was created for the pastel show at the Bastrop Fine Arts Gallery during March.  I like painting larger, I will have to do some more.  I will have this painting at the First Friday in May at the Bling store, see above.  If you would like to see it before then, just let me know.

I like this painting. Very NM! Sometimes I paint large; sometimes small. But painting large is very freeing.

Bag Blog, thanks. Trying to win the lottery to have a house like this along the Rio Grande in New Mexico. Fun to paint large.

I love the southwestern look to these with the adobe clay color and the turquoise door. Lovely job on both of them.

Thanks Joan. I've really liked your plein air lately. Just lovely watercolors.
