How You Can Use Golf Art

Aug 19, 2008
Golf art is becoming more and more popular for artist to paint as well as for golfers to collect. I am sure some people will try to contribute the growing popularity to Tiger Woods however, golf art including golf prints have come into its own. With the detail that Linda Hartough and Diane Selby are able to paint with, you literally feel like you are there without closing your eyes. Collecting golf art can not only look good in your home or office but it can also be a good investment.

Whether you are looking to decorate a room in your house or your office, photos of male and female Tour pros, abstracts as well as painted landscapes of memorable golf courses are all popular. By using golf art, you can show some of your personality into your home or office.

Collectible golf art comes in many different forms. They would include autographed portraits and photographs, limited edition golf prints, lithographs and giclees. In addition, artist proofs are available for each. An artist proof is an extra drawing the artist does which elevates the value of the piece of art.

You can create your own golf art by framing scorecards of special golf courses that you have played or maybe to commemorate a hole in one. You can blow up maps of courses and create something to hang on your wall as well. No matter the size large or small, or if you have done it yourself or if it was done professionally, golf art adds a nice touch to any golfer's home or office.

A framed golf print by Linda Hartough makes a thoughtful Christmas gift, retirement gift, anniversary gift, a birthday gift or a thank you gift to an important client. Golf prints are not just for men, either. The number of ladies playing the great game of golf is growing every year. They are buying more golf equipment, golf fashion and are more open than ever to purchasing golf art.

Linda Hartough has been commissioned by the USGA to create a painting of the golf courses that the US open is played on every year. Hartough's painting of the 2008 US Open golf course, Torrey Pines celebrates the American golf landscape by masterfully depicting the selected par-3 hole. The amount of detail shows the dramatic canyons, the Pacific Ocean as well as the city of La Jolla in the distance. The panoramic sunset view from the elevated third tee marks Linda's 19th commemorative painting for the U.S. Open Championship series. This golf print is available in a limited edition print or as an artist proof.

You can find golf prints and golf themed art online art galleries, finer retail golf stores, as well as various country club golf shops. As with any art, prices vary widely depending on the subject, the scarcity, the artist, and whether it is signed. It is best to find something that you like and can enjoy while you have it. This way if the value of the piece does go up while you have it is like sugar on top.
