There is a 19th century portrait of a somewhat famous distant ancestor that I'd like to get my own version of. The portrait is held by a museum but not at all a famous piece of artwork, it is noteworthy because of its subject. Where (or who) can I pay an appropriate amount of money to get a very good copy of a 19th century oil painting? [more inside]
Recently I am sure I saw a script or action that analysed an image file and instead of generating the average colour, looked for a key colour (for example a logo colour) and provided that colour value. For example it might look at this image and give you the blue or the pink rather than a beige / skin tone average. Does this sound familiar?

I'm looking for some software that will help me manage a small artwork rental business.

Years ago I saw a painting in a newspaper with an accompanying article. I really liked the painting and made a vague mental note to look up more online but never actually did. As I recall, the painting was called something like "The Pioneers" and it was very detailed semi-futuristic buildings on the side of a cliff. I'd like to find it or the artist again. [more inside]

I'd like to start collecting art. I know, collect what you love - and I intend to. This is for my home, though if the pieces also have financial value down the road, so much the better.

As a non-expert with a budget of <$500-$2000, how do I go about buying interesting art without being fleeced? [more inside]

Can you recommend a framer in San Francisco? I am going out there at the end of May for my aunt's 60th birthday, and the present I'd like to give her is a large poster, framed. I do not wish to travel with the framed poster, nor ship it already framed, so I was thinking I could contact a good framer out there, ship the rolled poster in a mailing tube, and pick it up when I arrive in SF. Does this sound like a good plan, and who would you recommend?

I'm posting this for my sister. She is looking for a company like American Frame but which is based in Canada. She loves what they do but shipping into Canada (along with the brokerage fees involved) is too expensive. She wants to be able to order a kit like they provide (4 sections of framing material, 'glass' etc) from someplace in Canada. It has to exist but my google-fu has failed me (and hers is much weaker than mine)
