I could go on and on about how much I love Etsy, Folksy, DaWanda, Art Fire, Deviant Art and Big Cartel but instead I will just show you this octopus painting from Karen Watkins Art to make the point that I am so happy to finally live at a time where wonderful unique art is affordable and EASY TO FIND! There was a time, children, when there were no interwebs! All I had access to, that I could afford, were student art sales (which are still great), museum posters, and framing post cards and pictures from calenders. My dream was to one day be able to afford to mat AND frame the art, and to grow up and have all real signed prints! Well, unlike my dream, I never did grow up, and I still can't afford to both mat and frame, unless the print is small, but NOW, thanks to the sites mentioned above, I can have the prints I dreamt of, AND I can even buy an original piece like this stunning Octopus, if I save my pennies and don't buy too many plush monsters! Ahh, life is good!
