So who told you buying Original Art Work is only for the wealthy elite? Who told you that?
I think a lot of people think Original Art Work is only sold in prominent auction houses like Christie's or Sotheby's or in local art galleries, wrong.
Maybe 25 years ago but not today.
Flowers in a Clay Pot you can view more details about this painting here.
You can buy Original Art Work, I think any one can, check this out... If you earn a living of some sort, or you can afford to pay your cell phone and/or car payment whatever I would say you can afford to buy a Original Painting or any other piece of fine art.
Before we had on-line shopping at our finger tips Artists had no choice but to go through an Art gallery to sell their paintings, the Artist would have to jack up the price on their Art Work because once the gallery sold that particular piece of Art they would keep half the dollar amount of what the painting was sold for and this is how galleries have made their money and still do because there are artists out there who are more comfortable selling through galleries and that's fine because that's their choice.
So unlike 10 years ago as an Artist we don't have to sell our art through Art Galleries we can sell our Art online directly to our customers at much more affordable prices.
If you really like the work of an Artist but you can't afford to fork out a huge chunk of change just reach out to the artist and let them how much you love their work and that you want to buy one of their paintings but that you can't afford the entire dollar amount at the moment.
That artist may offer you installments for the purchase, I know several artists (including myself) that breakdown the cost of a painting into 2-3 installments for you to purchase.
Obviously each artist is different and some won't be open but most Artists that I know will, especially if their serious artists' with a passion for the Arts, but if you don't ask you'll never know.

This post is to share my creative thought process and opinion based on my knowledge and experience as an Artist I am not speaking for all Artists', each artist has their own creative methods, knowledge and opinion.
