Many of you folks know by now that a lot of the work I do is reproductions by "famous" artists. I like the original work, but I can never afford to buy it, so I decide to recreate it for myself. None of them are however exact reproductions, because very often I just do not get the paint mix combinations right. But I am usually happy with the end result. My husband asks me all the time "Why don't you paint something original? Something you have created?" And my answer always is "But but but... I like that painting and I cannot afford it, so I'll just do it for myself!!!".
I have friends who spend fortunes on artwork, and I mean a LOT of money and I can never understand why! Maybe there is a good reason...I've heard that they are collectors' items. What does that mean exactly??? So here is my question to you...
Would you rather buy this for Rs 80,000 by a "famous" artist
or this for Rs 2000?
This for Rs 50,000, again by a "famous" artist
or this for Rs 2500?
Why would a painting cost Rs 80,000? There's just paint, canvas, and time involved????Just asking.....I've always wondered!!
