An Artist Who Collects Art

You may not know this about me, but I have been silently collecting the art of other living artists. Why, you ask?

Well, it's for several reasons..

1. I put my money where my mouth is. If I ask collectors to buy my paintings, why not also support those who are working artists like me.

2. I'm inspired by the artists I collect. Having a piece of fine art from a modern day master inspires me to create masterpieces of my own.

3. Fine art is an asset. My art collection is on my balance sheet and I know that the art I collect will continue to increase in value.

  3. We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box ...................................................................
