3248 Buying some art.

Sunday, May 15, 2011

There is enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed.
-- Gandhi --


I decided this morning that I wanted to buy a print of Vermeer's "Girl Reading a Letter by an Open Window", one of my favorite paintings. I ended up at, where they have a huge selection of art prints in various sizes, which you can order bare, or with your choice of frames and matting. I ended up also ordering Andrew Wyeth's "Master Bedroom" and "Wind from the Sea".

What I found very interesting is that there are multiple different web sites where you can purchase art prints, and although they all have different URLs, they all have the exact same page layout, choice of sizes, matting, frames, and prices, and they're all running the same 20% off sale (ending tomorrow, by the way).

I bought a print from years ago. I got lots of spam from them later on, but it eventually stopped.

Also, a trick I've learned is that you can take a poster/print to A.C. Moore or Michaels, find a standard frame and they'll charge you only for the frame. Saves some bucks.
