If you have just moved houses then you may well find that you have a few blank walls just crying out for the perfect flower oil painting. However it is best not to rush into buying art as you want to get something that will give you pleasure for many years to come. A lot will depend on the room that you are buying the art for, and the furniture that it needs to work with.
Your flower oil painting should complement the colors of your home, and not clash. A well-chosen painting can be an excellent way to inject some bold color into space. It can make a statement about you as it shows what appeals to you and gives you an opportunity to express yourself through art.
An excellent place to search for art is online, as it can offer guide prices for art, and plenty of information about art galleries and the artists they support. It can give you a good idea of the kind of budget you will need for your art. The big galleries will support the better-known artists, so you may find better prices with smaller galleries who are showcasing new local artists.
You may wish to choose a flower oil painting that makes a statement. It can be fun to have something that starts a conversation whenever people come to your home. Art is such an individual thing it can be very entertaining to see who in your circle of friends likes the piece and who has very different ideas.
You should buy art because you love it. Art can appreciate in value but will tend to do so only very slowly. A lot of art is bought for sentimental reasons, such as to celebrate birthdays or anniversaries, or on special holidays. This can be lovely as not only will you enjoy looking at your flower oil painting, but it will bring back happy memories too.
Once you have chosen your flower oil painting, you may need to consider lighting it. It is no good buying a wonderful painting that will not be noticed or appreciated. Lighting can be in the form of track lighting, wall sconces or uplighting.
Make sure that all your other furnishings complement your new piece. If they do not then consider moving them to other rooms. It is nice to add different textures to a room by using area rugs and other ornaments. Think about getting ornaments in more unusual materials that act as the perfect foil for your new art.
Do not forget to include living ornaments too. Fresh flowers or a beautiful plant will add life and vitality to a room. Bonsai trees can make an interesting focal point. If you do not have the time for real plants then there are lots of artificial and dried flowers around that can look stunning, especially against your flower oil painting.
Above all, buying art should be fun. It is an indulgence of the senses to choose a beautiful new flower oil painting, but it will last forever. Art should always be something you absolutely love, and if it is good, then you may find yourself noticing interesting new details every time you look at it.
