The coronavirus has forced us to cancel our holiday plans, reduce travel and stay local to help reduce the spread. This has been a terrible blow for tourism and hospitality.
But some commercial sectors are booming during the pandemic.
Home improvement and renovations are doing record business as people turn their attention and holiday budgets to improving their homes and surroundings.
Which makes perfect sense a holiday although good for the soul is fleeting but investments into your home reap rewards for years to come.
The same is true for investing in original art.
The cost is very often a fraction of a holiday - even less than a road trip. Yet you can enjoy the view for years to come and the art increases in value over time. If you have had your eye on a piece of original art - there really has never been a better time to make that investment and become an art collector.
Instead of buying artworks ( usually mass produced prints) from big box stores, look to support local artists and small businesses. Not only will you own a one-of-a-kind piece, but you’ll also be giving back to your community and supporting exceptionally talented artists.
I could mention my web site and promote my art - but this is really about finding a style and price point that resonates with you and taking the plunge to dive into collecting art. With so many talented local artists there really has never been a better time to buy original art.
