Collecting Art As A Hobby
There is something so interesting about collecting, because quite often the person collecting the different types of art become obsessed with them and they are quite knowledgeable on the subject of what they collect, art can be anything from limited edition plates to finely sculpted and painted tea pots, it doesn't matter, so long as the person doing the collecting enjoys it.
The art collector may collect art around a specific artist or period of the decade or past century or it could be art objects of them eras, such as buttons, lighters, broaches or anything that has an artistic design and a set in time style for collecting, when you hear the term art collector you would probably assume that they are quite rich and own a manor house and they drink their tea with their little finger up in the air pointing to the sky, but this is not true, art collectors can be from any class of people who choose to collect something.
Things that I used to collect and still do are comic books and action figures, the art and the design of these are really something that inspires me to draw,so that's why I collect these types of collectibles, anyone can have an art collection but every collection is different and that's the way it should be.
The thrill of trying to find certain parts of your collections that you need is part of the fun as you scour eBay or car boot sales and flea markets to find your missing art pieces, you never know what bargains you will find from someone who just wants a few extra quid from your selves, some might not be serious collectors and may not know the true value of something so they let it go for pennies and that's where you step in and snap them up..
And you are not limited to your country either, as around the world there maybe some little treasures hiding away and so exhibitions and museums could provide the clues to finding these inexpensive items For example, the artist Linda Barnicott does excellent paintings of scenery, buildings, and local landmarks found around Pittsburg in Pennsylvania. so all you collectors can find local artists wares almost anywhere and everywhere if you look in the right places.
A hobby collecting art is a really fun thing to get into, because if you find others who enjoy the same things like you, then you could network and find out more by covering different areas of the globe, so start an art collecting hobby and start living life and anjoying art.
