I’d love to be a patron…

Yesterday, I hopped in the car with Shawna and her parents and journeyed downtown for the Austin Fine Arts Fair.  I wasn’t quite ready for such an event.  Almost a mile of booths filled with fine art threatened to overwhelm me.  It threatened to beat my bank account to death.

In the space of just over two hours, I found two originals I would love to own.  Sadly, since each was listed at $2700, they were about thirty miles outside my price range.  I did, however, buy smaller prints off of both artists…

I would love to have the disposable income needed to buy beautiful, original artwork.  The odds of it ever happening are slim, but I suppose there are worse goals out there.
