Start an Art Collection and Beautify Your Home

Starting an art collection can be a great past time. It also has the added benefit of beautifying your home. An art collection can include many different items, usually with an artwork painted on it. Many art collectors collect such things as saw blades, and wooden eggs which have had artwork painted on them. Some even collect designer rugs as art. Another form of the art collection is collecting limited edition plates, thimbles, Christmas ornaments, and figurines. And of course, many art collectors collect fine art paintings.

If you are just starting out, it is a good idea to browse around to see what you like. It can be artwork by a particular artist either past or present. Another option is to collect artwork around a particular theme. If you are particularly concerned about maintaining a color scheme in your home, then consider collecting items to decorate your home with an artwork that you like, that matches your home decor. You can even start a music collection from your favorite artist or from a variety of artists. There are many possibilities and options to pursue.

There is a misconception that an art collector is a wealthy person who can afford to spend $100,000 on a Van Gogh painting. However, there are many ways of collecting art that even a person with more modest means can pursue. Postcard are an excellent example. Most art museum gift shops offer high quality, glossy postcards printed with some of their more notable acquisitions. Buying a postcard is a great way to collect photos of expensive artwork.

If you plan on starting an art collection, here are a few tips to consider.

    Find a good source. If you are just starting out, the choices and options can be overwhelming! You may want to try eBay or other online marketplaces that sell artwork. Shopping online gives you the flexibility of comparing prices easily.

    Create a Budget. How much you would like to spend is entirely up to you. Remember that you can buy and sell as well. You can also try flea markets if you want to get a good price. You will be amazed at what other people are trying to sell off at a low price.

    Go Local. An artist can be found in every part of the world, so this makes art collecting very easy. Start by scouting local art shows, museums, and artist's hangouts to find out just what sort of you can find close to home, at a great price.

Starting an art collection can keep life interesting and is a great way to beautify your home. If you love being surrounded by beautiful artwork, consider starting an art collection today.
