I have a list. A list of 25ish things I’d like to do before I turn 25.
One of the things at the top of my list, including bake loaf of bread from scratch and go on a blind date [check to both], is to buy original art.
Elise has just completed her year long project, Make29. She created 12 products and sold them in editions of 29 & 290 [I bought the December edition]. When she announced that the final edition would be six of her beautiful abstract paintings & prints I just knew I had to get in on that action.
The Make29 editions have had a history of selling out within hours and I knew that because it would launch during the middle of our school day that I would have no opportunity to purchase my own. Thanks to an Instagram post, I remembered immediately after school and within 10 minutes of seeing the post, I had consulted with my best friend and Apple Guy and I had bought the original painting of “Choose.”
Not once did I ask myself if this was a silly impulse buy. It just simply wasn’t.
I knew three things:
- I wanted to support Elise
- I wanted to buy original art
- I just absolutely loved this painting
I could not be more happy with my first original art purchase and I know for a fact this will not be my last. I may have caught the bug, sorry Apple Guy!
