It’s to be admired. I am not sure if that kind of thing is common and though for some it may seem slightly extreme, it is the sort of thing that any emerging artist selling fine art online, or even offline for that matter, would certainly love to hear.
If you are looking to buy fine art online make sure you do your homework. I don’t mean to make it sound as it if it is a chore because it certainly is not. In fact, buying fine art online comes down to just following out on a few basic steps to ensure that you get what you’re looking for and ultimately plan to pay for.
First it’s a good idea to establish as to whether you are buying art to match the couch or buying art so you can buy a couch to match the painting.

As technology gets better so does it’s ability to easily reproduce work to make them look like authentic originals. See if the artist is issuing out certificate of authenticity papers with each piece of work. This also show the artist’s credibility and integrity he or she maintains in their work.
