Tips for New Art Collectors

Tips for Collectors:
(1)    First tip, buy what you like and what you feel you can afford.
(2)    Second tip, know the artist personally if possible and read his/her biography.
(3)    Third tip, research the market and find out generally speaking, what the range of the artist's works
         have been selling for to the pubic, and at auction.
(4)     Keep good records on each acquisition such as Artist, Date rendered, Purchase Price, Size of the
          art work, Media (oil, watercolor, pastel, mixed media, acrylic, sculpture, etc.), and ground such
          as board, canvas, metal, wood, marble base, etc.)
(5)     Record sales, if they occur of the buyer's name, address,  and the amout of the sale.  You should
          provide the buyer with a "Bill of Sale" describing the work of art and keep a copy for your own
