Art as Food

From the L.A.Times: Affordable art is the new reality.

According to the article, people in these impoverished times love to buy inexpensive -- but original -- prints and paintings. Their cravings are being addressed by warehouse-style galleries in L.A. (or online). If you like to treat your purchases as commodities like groceries, they will even let you pile them into a shopping cart.

I've been absent from reading for a very long while -- going through sort of a dark summer, despite some very good times, too. I love the idea people are buying art -- even a little! Makes me smile!
