How to Buy an Abstract Painting for Your Home

I paint for people who have a growing appreciation for their living space and want to improve it. People like myself who realize their surroundings effect how they feel. So if you’re starting a home decorating adventure, begin with the room you’re in most and pick the art first.

To select an abstract painting for your home, first measure the space where you would like your painting to hang. You can even tape newspaper to the wall and block out where you want your abstract to go.

When selecting an abstract painting ask yourself, do you prefer strong colours, contrast of light and dark, texture, or all of the above? When you’ve selected a few favorites then ask, what does each painting say to you, is one abstract more stimulating than the others?

You can’t go wrong with picking the abstract you love most above all others. Trust your gut feelings and put that painting in your cart before someone else snaps it up.

The painting Walking Arm in Arm Through Falling Leaves shown above is painted with acrylic paints in shades of green, red, orange and yellow and measures 18" x 24". Here two companions stroll arm in arm down the street enjoying the fall colours, bundled in warm sweaters, scarves and mittens.
