I just bought a painting!

I have admired Leonid Afremov for a very long time and he passed away last year. His original works are 20,000 and up but reproductions from his studio are on sale now. It comes with a certificate of authenticity that he worked on it also. It's oil and knife work. I can't wait to get it.

Anyone else able to buy a favorite painter?

I've never been able to purchase anything but a print.

However that painting is BEAUTIFUL! Congratulations!

Love the way it strongly evokes the feeling of an autumn rainstorm.

My husband bought me an original painting by Marci Long. While not well-known she does lovely work. Will attach picture tomorrow.

When you buy original artwork you are literally keeping new art works alive. Prints are sweet, but an original that you love is excellent to own.

Congrats on the wonderful addition to your home.

Oh, that is beautiful! Where are you going to hang it?

I've always loved Thomas Kinkade's paintings. Quite a few years ago, we decided to buy one from the gallery that is his original studio in Carmel, California. We bought one called 'Sunset on Ocean Avenue', which is a scene from Carmel, one of our favorite places to visit. Thomas Kinkade signed the back of the painting. It's definitely a prized possession for us now!
Enjoy your beautiful painting!

That is stunning! I love it!

My dad used to buy my mom prints of some of her favorite artists. She has several lovely paintings.

We live near some artist-heavy areas. I know several artists, so I have a few paintings by friends. There are two friends who make very different styles of work, but I’d love to have a piece from each. One is one of my longtime friends. One is a guy I dated for awhile. Both have pieces currently outside of my price range. I want an original, not a print. They don’t really go with anything in my home, but they somehow speak to me.

That is stunning. Love the colors and energy.

30 years ago, I was able to buy a glicee print from my favorite artist Lynn Lupetti. Itís sleeping child with a fantastical sleigh flying over her head. Lupetti was know for her painting of children, with something make believe going on as well. Later in her career she switched themes and color schemes and I lost interest.

I don't normally buy expensive things so this was a splurge. I'm going to hang it in my living room.

Ima the first one looks like they are swimming up from out of a jar. Very cool.

2teach I love Thomas Kinkade and would be so excited to have a real painting done of his. I have a Santa collection that has his art on the coats of each Santa. It's real paint, but I know it's not really him painting them. To have a real one done by him would be awesome.

Is gorgeous!! I have one in a very similar style but with more blue greens. It's a scene of a person walking in the rain in what looks to me like a Parisian park. I looked for a signature but there is none.

I just did some research online and found out that my print is titled Rainy Afternoon and it is indeed by Leonid Afremov.
