I appreciate you informing us that it is important to do research when buying art and to obtain a certificate of authenticity when we do to ensure we are purchasing the artwork from the artists themselves. I will be renovating my bedroom at home in Anchorage next month, and I was thinking of adding a painting to the room to liven up the place. I’ll take note of this when I visit an art gallery here in Anchorage soon to buy an art piece to display in my bedroom.
