Most of the time people buy my art because they love my style of painting and a subject matter. My style is unique and my subject matter is nature: tree of life, love birds, animals and gardens. My art collectors also often comment on my use of colors and texture. I use vivid, colorful color palette.
In other words, people like what they SEE and can identify with a subject matter. Art is so visual in nature that I often think that searching for art on the web using keywords is a strange and counter-intuitive thing to do. Most people, including myself, wouldn't even know what to search for. Maybe colors? Maybe size? My point is that we need to SEE art!
People buy art to decorate their homes and offices and the artwork's colors and style are very important in this situation. Paintings and prints are part of the overall feel and look of the interior design. Artists like myself love to create custom artwork for interior decorators and designers.
Art collectors buy art as an investment and many people buy art as gifts.
Why do you buy art? I am very interested to know. Please share it with us.
