Amateur art collecting isn't a science — it is, very appropriately, an art. When people are just starting out, though, they're keen to learn "the rules": what's the most you should spend? What should you always or never do? The truth is that there are no "alwayses" or "nevers" in this hobby. Over time, however, you do begin to develop an instinct for what's a good investment and what probably won't be. Sometimes you'll be wrong, but when you're right, the feeling is an amazing one. I've started this blog to share my knowledge with you all and to help you get started in the wonderful world of amateur art collecting.
