You may read about million-dollar art sales and declare, "I don't buy art - way out of my reach or interest! " But a World of Really Nice ORIGINAL ART is out there and here at ellefagan.com.
You browse and enjoy the discovery of an art work that you desire. You buy it and it is YOURS. You may find the feeling not much different than that enjoyed by million-dollar art sales - better sometimes: you get to love the art and make it part of you and keep a lot more of your money. ( smile )
The money spent on a fine arts purchase is ALWAYS well-spent and NEVER WASTED. If you buy it and love it - bliss!
ORRRR.. enjoy it for a bit, then pass it on as a deductible gift to a friend or donation to your church or club's fundraiser - it will be appreciated and never a financial loss to you. Some buy varied artworks and shift them about at change of season, or to enhance a special event or holiday. So many ways to let fine art enrich your life.
ONE caution: avoid gifting or donating really large works - too often it is tooooo much and then the recipient feels pressed to receive it and figure out what to DO with it. But most small works do DELIGHT as a gift or donation and be sure to tell the recipient to "pass it on" to keep the spirit alive in it. Works.
Even at first purchase of a major work, from the artist, the money is NOT a impediment. Pay in payments, or use escrow.com to hold the cash or art till everyone is happy. SAFE - very safe that way.
For modestly-priced items like the ones at my site, it is no strain and there are discounts available. Choose your work , contact the artist and get your code to enter a the checkout - done and done!
