Last night, I achieved a dream I never imagined possible — without winning the lottery, that is: purchasing a real piece of art by a known artist!
This would never have been possible without the aligning of the stars that was my husband's procrastination on a gift for our 5-year wedding anniversary on Friday and a well-timed flash sale on One King's Lane.
Soon, I will be the proud owner of a signed and numbered Josef Albers silkscreen print--an object I have lusted after for several years. I am over the moon and yet – dream achieved– I wonder if I shouldn't set my sights a little higher? A whole series of Albers' prints perhaps or even eventually, when I'm old and gray and have made my millions, an Albers painting. Ok, I'm getting a little ahead of myself. The fulfillment of one's wildest dreams can do that to a girl.
So how about you? Do you harbor a secret – or totally public – desire for a certain artist's work? How much would you spend to realize that dream? Also, do you buy what you like or do you look at art as in investment for your future? Let us know!
