I have rarely purchased actual paintings, drawings, photos etc. On that rare occasion it had a great deal to do with my not being able to live with out that image continuing to haunt me. If my husband and I agree on a work that we both feel that way about we generally buy it if the price is within reach (under $1000.00) But in the current ecconomy and gas likely to go way up - I think we are going to have to set that limit to perhaps $300-400.00. Yeah, economy maters - can't spend what you don't have!
