Personally, I've bought art on-line before in the form of a poster. This was a Christmas present and was duly returned. It cost me for all this of course, postage mainly as I got my money back after a while. I won't do this again unless I'm totally sure that the gift will be accepted and that I'm buying the correct item!
Buying original art on-line can be daunting. Where do you go? Who do you trust? Do I trust the site? What do I buy? The list of questions, risks and possible problems goes on..
So what do you if you happen across an original piece of art that would look super in your home or would be an exceptional gift for a family member or close friend.
Best thing to do is a bit of research. Check the on-line store policies.
