If you don't collect original art......what are you waiting for??? There are tons of talented artists out there that are selling their ORIGINAL artwork for extremely affordable prices! Don't settle for some boring print from Bed Bath and Beyond that 1,000's of people have. Get something unique and real!!
I know I don't need to say it but the best two places that I've found for great original artwork are:
Etsy and Ebay
Etsy is the headquarters for all things handmade by artisans.
1) Set up an account (free!)
2) Search the millions of items
3) Add favorite artists / artwork to your profile to keep up with new pieces.
4) Buy something! You will be surprised at how reasonable original artwork can be.
Ebay can be great place too for original artwork. The cool thing about Ebay is that many original works are set up in an auction format. Sometimes you can get great art for dirt cheap because no one else bids on it!!
Here are a few of my favorite sellers:
Erin Spencer - Great landscape oil paintings - I own two already...with more to come!
Sushipot - Cool little collages on wood and tons of other trinkets!
Veronica Funk - Terrific paintings with bright bold colors!
Leah Giberson - Check out these sweet paintings! - Gotta love the trailers!
Signed & Numbered - Need HANDMADE frames for great prices??
Dolan Geiman - Original panel paintings - $45! What a deal!
deehop - one of a kind art on Ebay!
This isn't even scratching the surface.....there are thousands of affordable works from great artists waiting for you. Start collecting original art today!!
