Another new one...I'm on a roll.
What do birds know? I dunno know, I'm not a bird. But wear a hat just in case. I like birds as a symbol: freedom, nature, wildness. Fun to draw.

This make me giggle; before, during and after I made it.
Cross pollinizating, evolution, our planet is getting mighty crowded, we're living close to the animals, side-by-side, pushing them out, who'll win, where are we going, hang on kids, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

There is a lot of art on the web. Check out flickr and type in the type of art you are looking for in the search pane. Tons of artists on Myspace as well and countless other on-line galleries. Most galleries are on-line as well.
If you find an artist you like, shoot them an email to see if they have anything for sale(if they don't already list their work on their own site).
Go to local galleries, go to galleries when you are on vacation, go to art fairs, whatever.
As to what type of art to buy, well that's up to you and your tastes. Forget about art as investment and just buy what you like. Maybe you start a collection of art of one type of animal that you like. Or, art that is all the same color. Or, same general style. Or, landscapes. Whatever floats your boat.
My personal collection (still budding) is quite eclectic. I just get what I like at the time. I'm an artist but I don't necessarily want to look at my own work all the time. I want to be inspired by the work of others.
So, go forth, look at all the art you can and buy what you like.

I've been wanting to get my own blank Munny for a while now. I got one from Kidrobot and got the paints out.
Here's your basic blank Munny in parts. Oh, what to do...
Start painting...add texture...I like to paint undercoats of color and add texture so that in the end result you will see color coming through the texture...I use Golden's molding paste to build up texture...hope it sticks...
Add more under-color...looks bad for Munny but don't worry it's only paint...
...add yet more color...
...done with the underpainting...now lets put on a topcoat...this shows the texture previously applied...
...close-up to see texture...
...a few details, put Munny back together and, voila! 'tis done.
