Original Canadian Art From a Living Artist
There is something about original Canadian Art that makes all my senses vibrate. When offered the opportunity to buy a print or the original, even if the original is beyond my current budget, I will always be drawn to the original. For me prints are lovely mementos of something undeniably beautiful, but they are not the real thing. Would you rather own the knock-off Chanel watch or the real, exquisitely made, real deal? Now you may not be able to stretch as far as to own a Lawren Harris original, but he is long passed and he doesn’t need your money to keep his career growing.

Experienced and new art collectors have numerous options for discovering an original work of Canadian Art. Through Artist, Art Gallery and Art Directory websites such as Artists in Canada, shopping for original fine art from Canadian artists has never been so easy. I don’t know about you, but I like a scavenger hunt, I like to find my own unique Art online, sometimes using Pinterest to develop a list of Artists and artworks I love. Here I can save pins to a board of my favourite Canadian Artists and come back later to narrow my search for the perfect art buy.
Recently I sold two original paintings to a client in Toronto, Ontario who discovered the paintings through this website and social media. Site unseen, ordered online and shipped to his home. As I have said before, there is nothing like seeing the real thing up close and personal, and if the painting looks great online, it will only look better in person. I have never heard an art collector disappointed by an online purchase, the first gift is receiving the Art you saw online, the second gift is getting to see the Art live with all the texture, the signature, the vivid depth of colour, the glistening and changing in different lights, the smell! Yes, always take a big inhale of your art, it is like arriving in the Hawaiian islands and inhaling the smells of the place. The smell brings sensation along with the rest of your senses when experiencing and collecting original art.
