I don't have a problem with buying pictures online. In fact I've bought a number of them without seeing them in person first.
I know a number of you may find this strange - dodgy even. But why?
I realise art is an emotional and intensely personal thing but if you like the image, have an idea about the size and the buying experience is pleasant - why not? Sure, the colours may differ slightly between real life and the image on your computer screen but they are fairly close.
Anyway, above is a little crab painting I bought online from Canadian/Chinese artist Eugene Wang. He makes beautiful little still life paintings and sells them via his blog. I've placed the picture next to one of my own above the kitchen table where I work every day.
I'd be interested in your thoughts about buying online though....

References for the motifs are amoebas, mitochondria, seed pods, marine life... I'm thinking: Vivienne Westwood, Malcom McLaren, Keith Haring, Jenny Kee, Linda Jackson...
Coming to Bondi Markets on Sunday 20 November - see you there!

This is my entry to the National Trust Harper's Mansion Art prize for Still life in October. It was selected to hang but sadly no prize.
I'll keep trying....

As you may know, I unleashed my Mango frooty bags on the unsuspecting public of Kirribilli earlier this year. I'm still refining my product and also sounding out which market is a good fit.
To this end, I will be coming soon to Bondi Markets and will be at the PYD Designer markets from 26-27 November. Above is a selection of my latest efforts.
I can't WAIT!
See you there!
