The best time to buy travel art...after your trip?

Have you ever been on an international trip and wanted to buy a piece of art to bring back home?  Far too many travelers would love to bring home artwork that commemorates their trip but find it logistically impossible.

First, trips are often jam packed with site-seeing and experiences.  Finding the right gallery or researching a local artist and fitting a visit into your itinerary is usually impossible.

Furthermore, carrying the work back home is also an issue -- either it’s too big to carry on, or you didn’t plan in advance by bringing another suitcase for check-in (who does?!).  With all the other knick-knacks that might be stuffed in your bags, it’s hard to justify a quick and uncertain art purchase among those.

Finally, as you emotionally escape daily life during your vacation, it can be hard to visualize where in your home this work would go, if it would fit within the color scheme or even the space available.  It’s not like we bring floor plans and color swatches with us on our vacations!

Once you are back, you can commemorate your trip with a commissioned work of art. Look through your photos and choose your most cherished memory; use it as the inspiration for your custom work of art.  You’ll be able to pick the perfect travel memory, spot in your home and the exact dimensions to fit the space.
