Answers to Questions Art Buyers Ask

Published by


Here are some answers to your most common questions about buying art.

Hi, I haven’t been here in a while. life got hectic and kept me occupied. But I’m getting back into painting and writing again. First, take a sneak peek at the artwork coming to my Artrepreneur showroom. I won’t go into detail about the artwork. But you know a post all about it is on the horizon.

Well, it’s time for me to answer the most asked questions about my artwork.

Where do you get ideas for your artwork? Artists are always influencing one another, and the world around us influences all art. Even when two people are looking at the same subject, no two pieces of art will be identical. This is because everyone perceives colours, composition, light and shadow in their own unique way.

Why do you use acrylic paint? My preferred mediums right now are canvas and acrylics because acrylic paint dries quickly. I tend to be impatient when it comes to seeing my ideas come to life, and since my artwork is layered, waiting for hours is not ideal. In short, watching paint dry is not my cup of tea!

How do you determine how many works to make in a series? As an artist, I rely on my intuition to determine the number of pieces I create in a series. Once I find myself growing bored with using the same colors, shapes, or composition styles, I move on to the next idea.

Why did you choose these colours or patterns? I choose colours based on my mood. It is a common practice that many people use to express themselves and their emotions. I find bright and bold colours to be uplifting and energizing, while others may prefer more muted tones to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere. Ultimately, the colours we choose are a personal choice and can reflect our individual tastes, preferences, and personalities.

How would one take care of or display this piece to keep it safe? Taking care of art and displaying it properly can help preserve its quality and value. Here are some tips to keep your art safe:

  • Avoid exposing your artwork to direct sunlight, as it can cause colors to fade and materials to deteriorate over time.
  • Keep your artwork away from humid areas and keep it in a climate-controlled environment to prevent damage from moisture.
  • Use protective covers such as glass or plexiglass to shield your artwork from dust and other contaminants.
  • If you are transporting your artwork, make sure to pack it carefully and use appropriate packing materials to prevent damage.
  • Carefully install artworks

By taking these precautions, you can ensure that your artwork remains in good condition and retains its value over time.

What are the shipping fees for your artwork? My shipping fees are based on the artwork’s size and destination and are subject to change.

How much does it cost to frame a piece this size? The cost to frame artworks can vary depending on the size of the piece, this makes it difficult to provide an accurate estimation of the cost. However, many framing shops offer price lists or can provide a quote based on the dimensions of the artwork. It’s best to contact a local framing shop or do some research online to get a better idea of the cost.

That’s all from me! Hopefully this helped, and thanks for reading. Take care, I will be back soon!
