How do you start buying art? 

First you need to take some time to think about it, to focus.  Maybe the first thing you think about is what kind of artwork you enjoy looking at.  Look around your house, your office, your friend’s houses – your life, and start to notice what you are drawn to.  Colors, moods evoked, feelings elicited, specific imagery.  It sounds really basic – but taking stock of what moves you and learning how to talk about it (even to yourself) is really the first step.
