Giving the Gift of Abstract Art

Have a friend who loves abstract art? Give them a colorful abstract painting for Christmas. It doesn’t have to be big or expensive. Buy small original modern art instead. There are smaller unique abstract paintings available that are perfect for hallways and little corner nooks.


If you are trying to narrow down what abstract painting to buy when shopping for your friend, look at their home and make note of the abstracts they have. Don’t buy more of the same. Select art that’s unique, but will fit in with what they already have. Then look at the colors they use throughout their home decor. Do they like bold colors or soft pastels? Next is there a small area where an abstract would fit? In that case plan ahead and bring a measuring tape to measure that space.

You can also go window shopping or browse on the Internet with your friend for contemporary art to seeing what they prefer, but would never buy for themselves. They’ll be truly surprised when they unwrap the abstract art you give them on Christmas day.

The abstract painting Spirit of Christmas shown above is a textured acrylic in bold red, pink, yellow and green, layered on a blue background. This painting represents the feeling of family celebrating with good food and conversation. Decorations and lights add to the festive spirit of giving and receiving. This original wall hanging measures 18" x 24".
