what to do....
last week i purchased some limited editioned works from iksodas and simply fucking love them! i gave one to denim for his birthday and hoping it all goes well for him. and the other will replace one of the pieces i have up on the wall now. with that one being gently jacketed and placed in my fire resistant case... thing of it is i usually try to not buy more than one at a time and never more than one a month... yet here i am interested in yet another print from a new photographer (a new one to me that is)... i also try and give myself several artists and prints to choose from... so i can hem and haw and check them out a million times before i do any negotiating... there have been times where i whip out the wallet and buy, buy, buy... that has produced varied results... sometimes to my excitement the prints come and I'm fucking blown away.(this months purchase for example) other times not so much.
i once received the wrong image from a guy in Israel, "no problem, I'll send the correct one this minute!" he said.
"don't you want this one back?" i asked
"no, keep it. my mistake is your good fortune."
turns out the new photo he sends me is also #19/20 (hmmm...) and for the price i paid for the first one, i wasn't to sure that i was getting such a rare piece. now they sit in a plastic jacket buried under some of my earlier, less informed purchases.
there is so much wonderful art out there and id love to have it all on the walls or sitting in my private archive but i don't have the money.. "poor me huh, not enough money to buy art? too bad eh?." people are starving and I'm worried about which piece to buy... well i work my ass off for a living and i do deserve to treat my self in the fashion in which suits me best! hah!
bet you didn't see that coming did you...
anyway, I'll put it to you readers, I'm looking at an image from btcharles at the moment titled "finally". great pic! well shot and good depth eh? if any one has another artist or image they think i might look at to give my self a choice and not just have a buy or not to buy decision I'd love the feed back. i wont tell you what he might want for this image, so its up to you to decide what i might pay and what i might enjoy...
its not a contest. there is nothing to win, but I'll link all your suggestions on a post and give you full credit if i purchase something... how bout it!?!?!
