Sorry its all a bit late today – had breakfast in the garden and then lost track of time so excited was I to see everything in bud and springing into life.
Onto my favourite topic ART and starting a collection. Its not just the preserve for billionaires you know anyone but anyone can start collecting, and once you get the bug belive me it becomes a bit of an obsession. My own personal collection is small but growing – broader as opposed to bigger. I’ve picked up paintings from from flea markets and junk shops, have a couple of high enders from galleries in LA, the odd small sketch plus a couple of rusty old signs. Am thinking about getting into photography after posting about Francois Halard’s pad yesterday its totally inspired me to change direction a bit.
The golden rule with this collecting lark it to buy what you love. I have never nor would ever buy something purely for investment purposes. Visit galleries, student shows, surf the web (ebay and etsy are good) as well as checking out auction houses you will start to get a feel for what appeals. If you happen to be in London in June some big name artists each year flog their wares from their car boots at the Art Car Boot Fair cannot wait. Happy hunting.
