Bring Life To Your Walls

Aug 18, 2007
Unless you are a minimalist, there is nothing more blah than a big blank wall. Even hotel rooms noted for their cheap interiors pay for some kind of art to hang up and keep the long expanse of white paint from just staring at you in horrible opaque certainty.

Art does more than keep you from staring into space. It shows your interests, reflects your personality and ultimately gives other people a good sense of who you are, while giving you the comfort of being surrounded by things you love. Buying art can be a time consuming process, even when you know an artist you like. Online shopping can help ease the burden to your time and wallet.

Go To The Source

The artistic community has embraced the internet as a great way to show their work and drum up commissions and sales from people who don't have access to galleries. Personal websites and online brokers are also particularly nice for artist's whose work isn't shown in galleries because they are new or the nature of their art does not appeal to broad tastes.

Artist's websites can give you information about the artist, shows, and motivations as well as offer originals, copies or lithographs for purchase. Female form photographer Judy Francesconi whose art rarely is shown away from her Provincetown Gallery has a website that offers note cards, calendars, and original artworks, as well as way people can pay for a private sitting with her. Look online for your favorite artist to get the very best they have to offer.

Buy Bulk

Art is not something you usually buy in dozens, like eggs, but there are times when people end up with walls to fill and no real theme or idea how to fill them. Maybe it's an office or a guest room you need to decorate. There is a site for person who needs inexpensive art to keep the walls from screaming their neglected state.

One website helpful in allowing you to search and find the right art for the right space is lowcostprints. This site has posters, oil paintings and prints of everything from famous art like "Starry Night" to modern and abstract art. The prices are very reasonable and the selection is diverse enough to please any taste or setting.

Put Yourself In The Picture

Sometimes when you look at the walls you don't want to see a reflection of yourself, you want to see someone you love. In that case there are online artists who can take photographs you digitally send them, and make hand drawings oil painting or other works of art based on the image you desire.

Chitracreations is a website that does photo edition, reparation (for the perfect picture except for the red eyes), and artistic creation of images. The line drawings created from the photographs have depth; character and personality that would make any visitor in your home wonder where you got such an amazing hand drawn likeness.

Our individual tastes in art show the diversity we experience in our culture. For every person there is a style and for every style there is a site waiting and ready to fill your walls with life.
