While this may not be the best way to get a bargain, I am sure to find exactly what I need this way. I’ve found a few people whose work I admire, and I have returned for more pieces later. The benefits are:
  • The artist is familiar with my taste.
  • I’m familiar with the artist’s needs and work habits.
  • The second commission will most likely fit in with my collection, since the artist’s former work is similar in style.
