Hi Angela, great to see such passion for collecting art. The simple rule of buying what you love always stands true and you'll never regret these purchases. There is some amazing local art that is really affordable, and it is becoming much more accessible online now.

Thanks for your quick response, yes very blessed to have this, my husband his 3 siblings all received one, it is just not our style, and not something I can see us hanging in our home to enjoy.

Hi Ed, good to you here on Houzz, great article! Your 5th point - know your medium - is of course critical. Whilst all artworks need to be loved and cared for, those on contemporary media such as perspex, glass and metal do offer the possibility for display in a wider variety of less 'stable' and even exterior environments.
