Ever want to start an art collection?
All you really need is the art, the space and (if you really think you’ll need it) a home security system. For security, there are tons of places on line with the information you need. As for space, any home or apartment can be turned into a gallery. And the art, well, all you really need where that’s concerned is time, money and an idea as to what you like.
You see, some people will act like art collecting is something reserved for the cultural elite. That, by merely asking where to start, you are somehow unworthy to be a part of this crowd. The fact is that all you really need to even get started on a collection of your own is an idea of what you like.
Everyone knows what they like. Do you know what you like? Do you like landscapes? Do you like still life? Do you like surrealism? Find out what you like and that will help you during the search.
As for where to find the art, some of the best places to look are yard sales and folk art fairs. Not only can you purchase some brilliant pieces at reasonable costs, you might discover a few budding prodigies along the way.
