Frugal Tip: Shop for Art on Ebay

A little known secret is that there are hundreds of very talented artists selling their paintings on Ebay. You can get original paintings for very little money. I have purchased several paintings this way and they are as nice as the ones I have seen at any art show. Owning the original painting is so much better than a poster or print. When you go to Ebay - search for "paintings". Then after you get the results, click on "Direct from Artist" in the left hand column. I usually search for "large painting". I have a lot of big walls to fill!

Here is an example of a painting that currently has a high bid of $49 and it is HUGE!

Check it out next time you need some artwork. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at what you can find!
