WHY INVEST IN ART? - 12-13-2011C

Why Invest in Art?
While on the Facebook fan page of Jay Abraham - A Leading Marketing Authority - I saw a post that Jay made:
Jay Abraham
Whenever you make an offer, ask for a sale, run an ad, have a salesperson make a proposition to a customer or prospect, or offer a product or service for sale at a specific price, always tell the reason WHY.
next came this helpful post from one of my fellow fans that got me thinking as to how to answer some of the WHY’s that Jay was speaking of:

7 Figure Speaking Empire | Successful Speaker Training
and Coaching Walter - Without looking at your art, we could suggest your WHY to be, because I know it will look great in your home, because my art can bring any room together, because my imagery evokes a subtle calming sensation, because my art is unique; there is no other art like this, because I had a vision of the person who would want this piece, and it was you. Hopefully you can work with some of those. Answer your why question with because. We believe that you can come up with plenty of WHYs because you are a creative individual. Where is your art at? Anything online?
and then came my answer -
well it could be any one of those things - yes - but it is for the individual to decide which if any it is after they view the art - I think - because it is such a personal subjective issue - where the art sells itself *(I think) - the entire collection is only available online here:

The Bebirian Art Collection

Why Invest in Art?
oh - here is a thought - Why even look at my Art - Well people are always looking to invest in worthwhile entities - and whatever would be considered a "good" investment and J.P.Getty - who was the richest man in the world at the time that he wrote his book "How to Be Rich" wrote that Art is the Best Investment and followed through with that thought so much so that he established the Getty Museum in California - : The Getty - well that is the reason you should at least take the first step and begin viewing my art -

Why Invest in Art?

a little more in depth on Getty’s thoughts on art:

Getty humbly saw himself as a patron of the arts on a scale at least equalling the Medicis of Renaissance Florence, and is amusing when discussing the lack of cultural knowledge of the average American. He called art 'the finest investment' not just because it more than held its own financially, but because of the pleasure of living with beautiful things. In return for enriching the world, the wealth creator had a duty to support those who lived for their art. Yet he also saw business itself in creative terms, noting that those at the top are 'creative artists' instead of simply 'artisans of business.'
On collecting itself, the author dissolves the myth that it is a rarefied pastime for the rich, mentioning several acquaintances in regular jobs who had built up excellent collections. Anyone with enough money can pay top dollar at Sotheby's, but the true collector is a scholar who appreciates the background of each piece she buys. As Getty rather poetically puts it: "To me, they are vital embodiments of their creators. They mirror the hopes and frustrations of those who created them - and the times and places in which they were created." What could be more fascinating or enriching?
the next step to reinforce that is that once you are there in my galleries you might as well spend a little more time finding some or at least one image that inspires you - an image which may be used to motivate you and/or an image or a few images that may - by looking at them - give you energy (something loads of people need in this world - you might also find an image that either speeds you up or slows you down - if you need pacing in either of those directions - please note that you are welcome to view these images and can do all of this for free without spending a penny 24 hours - 365 days per year for the rest of your life -
finally - if you find such an image or images that you are able to get inspiration from then it makes perfect sense to invest in prints or canvases of those images to be in your environment to be able to inspire motivate - give you energy in that environment so that you find yourself becoming reinforced by these continually -
Why Invest in Art?
Now I spend almost all of my time creating art exactly because of Getty's statement that art is the best investment since why would I want to place my thoughts - ideas and energy into anything else if this is the best investment - now I have over 110,000 images which can be ordered in 8 different paper types or canvas and in different sizes which can be made into an infinite number of collections and businesses for other people anywhere in the world -
and in addition the site that my art is on runs site wide special discounts from time to time - one special discount is running now -
Dear friends after reading the above and the recommendations that I use for the WHY’s people should buy my art - I have really have only one WHY and that is - BECAUSE YOU LOVE IT!!!!!!

Business - any Business and the Art of Time - 11-14-2011HABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRTUV

for me there are great time difference between the time a person finds out about my art and the time that they will ever be ready - sometimes the time is very short - and sometimes perhaps it can be a very long time period till they are ready - this works the same with getting assignments in photography as well - there are many people who need something and get recommended - in a matter of minutes and the next thing they know they are in my studio getting what they want - but sometimes it may take a year - 3 years and sometimes it has been up to 12 years where a person has first found out to me and then finally needs what it is that they originally thought about when they first discovered my service existed and then they become a consistent repeat customer - so I think that people who are starting out in business would benefit greatly in realizing that these type of time differences or time lags from a person first finding out about your products and services and then when they are actually ready to call up and buy can vary greatly from person to person -

Thoughts of Thinking and trends of the future! - 12-30-2011EABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRTU

I have been thinking about what different people could want and then I decided to think about those things that I could possibly want - so far I have come up with the idea that what I would really like to have is at least most if not all of the knowledge and wisdom of the world or at least to know it - I say that because having it and knowing it might be two different things - what is perhaps is an astounding thing is that most if not all of the knowledge and wisdom of the world is here in some form or other on the Internet - whether written down on a web site or simply in the minds and thoughts and hearts of the friends that I have here or perhaps within their friends - but in some way most if not all of the knowledge and wisdom of the world is within reach of all of us - but the next question for me - is this knowledge and wisdom being utilized by us - to the extent that it is making a profound difference in our lives ?-

perhaps or perhaps not depending if and when we are actually searching for - making use of and even perhaps sharing this knowledge and wisdom and exchanging feedback as to how or when or why or any combination of these uses of such knowledge and wisdom to the best advantage -

I am wondering if there are many people who are viewing the whole picture as to how things are really changing in terms of what is accessible to us - and what it could mean even if it does not mean that yet -

are we as humans - ready for such grand increases in improvements in our lives and are we prepared ourselves with what we are to do with ourselves once we have made such improvements -

do we understand how to live at such elevated levels as well as how to enjoy ourselves - make good use of our time as well as perhaps earning money at these elevated states of being -

it is - I believe - one of the abilities of the age we are in - to have many of the wrote tasks that men have performed in the past - be done my machines and computers - therefore placing a new type of burden upon us to do something other than these types of work tasks that so many people were challenged with in the past - something more in the line of THINKING - are we ready to start up our brains - power them up and begin working in these directions on new and totally different types of tasks - the thinking kind?

perhaps we can begin by thinking about what I have written here -

Without Distractions - 8-20-2011GABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRTU

I think that not only is the removal of distractions important but there is also the question of in what direction or let's just say the objective of the direction that a person will be heading in when the distractions are removed is of great importance as well - It might just be that many - most or even perhaps all people allow themselves to be distracted simply because they feel the need to "socialize" and so there is this tendency to listen to - look for and to get involved with what it is that other people - one - a few - a larger group - any one and every one is doing.

The freedom not to have to work in any particular "job" as has been the fate of so many people for so many generations of human kind is actually a most fantastic opportunity - but this opportunity is different than the "opportunity" to have a job and work with others on any particular task such as one would find they had on a job assignment -

Instead the human being is now free in many cases to be removed from the need to have to be distracted by any or all other humans and to instead pursue a line of pure thought in just about any direction or line of thinking that is chosen and by doing this a greater distance or amount of thought can be levied in the one direction that is chosen - apart from a few meditative Gurus - this type of opportunity has not been afforded many people on this planet in a long time - and it will be interesting to see the ideas - thoughts and products that will arise if and when such thinking does occur -

Perhaps this earlier writing of mine on this topic might be of interest to you:

The Art of Time and Money
Which although seems to allude all forms of inspection is really most probably the cause of any distress in the worlds of yesterday - today or tomorrow.
First of all, let me thank you for spending your time to at least begin, if not continue reading this piece, since it is, whether you realize it or not, allowing me to convey to you an important part of my thinking. And besides the value of your time, which I acknowledge you are giving me at this very moment, I would also hope to acknowledge that this translates to money, whether in yesterday’s, today’s, or tomorrows, value of the idea referred to as money, and as such that your investment of your time in reading these words will bring you some profit, which for you specifically reading this will translate into a greater profit (idea or otherwise), and therefore make your investment a worthwhile one.
Next, let me add an important concept into the arena of ideas, and say that the idea or ideas that one is working with (be it money or any other idea) change(s) constantly with thought - whether it is thought about the idea specifically, thought about the relationship of the idea to things, thought about the idea to other ideas or, just pure thought on any number of factors which make up the idea in it’s totality. This being the case, an infinite amount of thought (constantly changing and infinitely generated by ones mind) can be looked at in reference to any one of the above mentioned items without exhausting the ability for a single person, let alone a combination of two or more person’s working on the same subject together, to increase the thought on the subject infinitely.
Why should we stop? Where should we stop? What should we stop for? What constitutes a need or reason to stop? And, in
reality, when we appear to stop, do we in fact actually stop, or is there a continuation in the subconscious in the same direction with the thought, despite our conscious effort to chose a point where the thought direction and progress has stopped?
When looked at from this perspective, thought on any subject, in any direcion does not have to nor does it likely ever stop in any one direction when we consciously think it does, and therefore the thought does not have to hinder or prevent or interfere with our productivity in the physical world (in the case of the Industrial World) or the knowledge based or idea world (in the Information World), but merely continues throughout as we develop more and more and evolve into our next World - the Thought World, where constant thought changes as well as physical changes are constantly noticed as part of the scenery in the everyday landscape, and lend themselves to a better undertanding as to what exactly is going on in our environments.
How does this translate into an Art of Time and Money? Simply add a greater amount of thought to any Time and/or Money transactions and the infinite dimension of the thought direction is added to enhance and transform each one of these transaction into infinite understandings.
Greater profit than this no man can ask for at the present moment!
