If I could, I would buy massive amounts of art work. The problem is, due to all my kid's art and photos, my wall space has all but run out. On a recent trip to New Orleans, I came up with a work around that allows me to enjoy the art I love and at the same time honor the artist who created it. While walking the main art district I ran into so much talent. After speaking with the artist to get approval, I took a photo of them with their artwork. It was a win win on all sides. I made sure to email each of them their photo and I can still look back on the art work I enjoy plus we got to know each other briefly. I wish I had thought of this trade years ago!
