Improving art markets

I've heard it said numerous times, "(My city) has a terrible art market.  No one buys paintings."  Perhaps you've heard it, or even said it.  

I can relate.  It's come out of my mouth more times than I care to count.   

Ultimately, I had to look in the mirror on this one.  I never buy paintings.  Yet, this is precisely what I expect of others. So I've decided to turn that around.  My wife and I made our first painting purchase Feb. 28, 2014.  We are now owners of a Brian Hinkle original.  We love it.
