Many of us are looking for ways to create extra income from the money that we earn from our jobs. Putting money in the bank just isn’t attractive anymore due to the very low interest rates that many financial institutions are currently offering. Property has gotten incredibly expensive and so this is not an avenue that we can explore with the budget that we are working with. It is important that you just don’t leave your money sitting idly in the bank when it could be doing so much more for you and sometimes it requires very little effort on your part to improve upon your current financial portfolio. You have to stop spending money on items of clothing and shoes that just sit in your wardrobe and you just take them out from time to time. Unless you’re investing in designer handbags or watches, you’re throwing your money down an endless pit.
Many people have decided to branch out into art and specifically art collecting. There are so many different things to choose from like aboriginal dot art and others that are becoming incredibly popular and they are things that you really should be thinking about investing in. It is fair to say that their value can only increase as more and more people start to learn and appreciate aboriginal culture. If this sounds like an attractive proposition and something you would like to look into further then here are some of the rules of art collecting to help you along the way.
– Forget about the Internet – We spend so much time on the Internet every single day and we waste literally hours every week looking at things that are not going to help us in any way shape or form when it comes to building a stronger financial future and getting Dot Art. Get yourself off the Internet and get yourself into the numerous galleries in your local area and in many antique stores as well. There are bargains to be had all over the place and people have become rich overnight by purchasing a painting that they acquired at a car boot sale for only a few dollars.
– Get back on the Internet – This may sound conflicting to the previous advice given before, but now that you’ve been out and about and you have learned about Aboriginal art and what is available, you can now turn to the Internet to increase your knowledge and to do the necessary research. There are many gallery websites on the Internet and you can educate yourself about certain artists and why they have become incredibly popular over the years. You can even check on whether or not art prices are fair by using the numerous price databases currently on the Internet.
There are also many auctions that you could be attending in your local area, but the important thing to remember is that you do not get excited and bid more than you can afford. If you cannot get the painting of your choice then choose similar work from the artist like a paper drawing or a photograph instead.
