GUEST BLOG POST // When I visit a client’s home to do a Feng Shui consultation, I always take a good look at the pictures and paintings on their walls. Likewise, when my friends or clients move home, they often ask me where to hang their paintings in their new place. No matter what type of art you like, using your pieces of art is a very powerful way to improve your Feng Shui!
While I’m all about supporting local artists, let’s face it—when you find a great piece or a particular artist that speaks to you in some way, sometimes it’s worth it to invest in shipping costs and foreign currencies to enhance your collection. If you’re thinking about buying art from overseas or internationally, these are a few things to consider to ensure you have the best possible experience...
One of the most common questions I get from beginner art collectors is how to tell whether a fine art piece is worth investing in. It’s not an easy question to answer, as there are many variables that come into play for each particular piece and each particular collector. Before you begin investing in art, it pays to make a game plan so that you have a better sense of which pieces are sound investments for your collection.
A fine art collection is a great investment that you and your loved ones can enjoy for years to come provided you take good care of your pieces. However, left neglected, paintings, prints, photographs and sculptures are all susceptible to damage and deterioration over time. By following these simple steps, you can keep your fine art pieces in the best possible condition so they can be passed down through the generations.
