Unique abstract art that brings color and life into your favorite spaces, and onto your favorite things
Art work transforms your house, apartment, office, or other space into something extraordinary. When you enter a room and suddenly stop because a painting grabs your attention and keeps it, your perception of the room is transformed. The colors and patterns in the art work combine with the surroundings in interesting and creative ways that brighten up any space.
Galleries of paintings with interesting colors and shapes!
My paintings have a lot of bright, vibrant colors, and unusual shapes. I discovered that my abstract art looks like a whole new picture when you rotate it, so I created 4 galleries/collections, one for each rotation around a circle. The Abstract Gallery shows the art work in the original, "as it was painted" position. The next 3 galleries (Abstract 90, Abstract 180, Abstract 270) rotate the image counterclockwise by 90, 180, and 270 degrees, respectively. Here's a quick video that explains the differences between the 4 galleries.
Shopping on Fine Art America/Pixels.com
My portfolio is hosted by Fine Art America/Pixels.com, and you can browse through it via the shopping cart below or you can go directly to my gallery site. You can order directly from the shopping cart below, but my suggestion for the smoothest buying experience is to create an account and log in before you create and place your order.
Quality matters, and that's why my art is produced by Fine Art America
I go through Fine Art America to produce prints of my art work because the quality of their materials and workmanship is excellent. When the wall art arrives, it is ready to hang - no need to worry about hanging hardware. The color reproduction from the digital image to the finished picture is outstanding. And I've been asked multiple times if a Fine Art America reproduction is the original painting.
Who is Fine Art America?
Fine Art America is somewhat similar to Amazon. On Amazon, you can buy products from multiple sellers, and the process is all through one company - Amazon. With Fine Art America, you can buy art products from multiple artists, and the process is all through one company - Fine Art America. They handle everything - printing, framing, matting, packaging, shipping, and payment. They have 14 production facilities running 24hrs/day to produce the items you want, the way you want them.
Fine Art America is one company with two web sites - Pixels.com and FineArtAmerica.com. Pixels.com primarily sells wall art and non-wall art items, and is the preferred site to use. FineArtAmerica.com is the older site and sells only wall art. Either way, Fine Art America has been in business since 2006 and is the world’s largest art marketplace and Print-On-Demand (POD) company.
Fine Art America makes Variety the Spice of Life
Through Fine Art America, my artwork is available on canvas, paper, metal, wood, and acrylic materials. There are over 60 mats and 150 frames, creating thousands of possible combinations. In addition to wall art, you can put the images onto cell phone cases and many other cool items - more about that shortly.
Flexible size options ensure your picture fits your wall space perfectly
Fine Art America's print sizes range from about 8” to 60” or more. So you never have to worry about artwork that's too big or too small for the space you have. Don't think that you need huge open spaces on your walls in order to have abstract art work, or that small works of art won't look nice. Sometimes, a smaller piece of art work is exactly what you need to brighten up a space, whether it's your apartment, office, home, or other locale. Every picture is offered in many sizes, so you can buy the size that fits perfectly in your space. With a variety of sizes to choose from, you'll never have the art buyer's worst nightmare - "I absolutely love the picture, but I can't buy it because it's too big or too small to look right in my apartment, house, office, or business!"
How to properly select print sizes on Fine Art America/pixels.com
As you are selecting the options for your picture, the dimensions listed on the screen will automatically update. For example, here are the dimensions of a piece with mat and frame:
Image: 30" x 23"
Mat Border: 2"
Frame Width: 2"
Overall: 38" x 31"
Note that the image is 30” x 23" but the overall is 38” x 31" – that’s a difference of 8 inches in width and 8 inches in height. The overall is the most important dimension to be aware of, because if you don't keep an eye on it, you can end up with a picture that's too big for your wall. It's wise to measure the space on the wall that you expect the picture to take up, including the mat and frame, before you select any options on pixels.com.
If you have trouble visualizing, the pixels.com mobile app shows the picture (with mat and frame) on your wall before you order it. It could help you decide on sizing and where to put a piece of art. Another way to visualize the size of a print is to simply mark off the picture's space on the wall with blue painter's tape, or holding a piece of similar-sized cardboard against the wall. Just be sure to remove the painter’s tape right after you’re done.
I love abstract art but I'm not sure it'll look right on my wall - can I see a preview?
Yes, you can preview every picture on your wall before you buy it! Pixels.com's mobile app works on iPhones and Android phones. Here's a quick tutorial on how to preview a picture on your wall.
Does a print have to be on canvas? What choices are available?
Can you guide me through the options for ordering my pictures as wall art? There are a lot of choices.
Sure - here's a quick video that goes through the options for art on canvas. You can get wall art on acrylic, canvas, metal, paper, and wood. The options for materials other than canvas and paper are fairly similar (but do not have or need frames). Note that for a Framed Print (which is paper), you can add one or two mats. The top mat is the outside one that is farthest from the picture. The bottom mat is the one that is inside and closest to the picture.
I don't have an eye for picking frames and mats - can you help me?
A catalog of pictures with suggested frames and mats is in the plans, but in the meantime, if you email me with the following items I'd be happy to get back to you with a few suggestions:
- The link to the picture you want.
- The material you want (ex. canvas or framed print). Note that acrylic, metal, and wood materials do not have frame/mat options.
- The size you want (it does not have to be exact, but you can quickly copy it right off of the picture page, on the size tab).
- Ideally, a couple photos of the area you want to hang the art in - a day shot and an evening/night shot. Even a basic idea of the color(s) in the surrounding area would be helpful.
Abstract art looks very cool on things too!
