Shopping for and collecting abstract paintings is a labor of love. I adore abstract paintings, and I think that my favorite medium is gouache. Recently, I purchased a piece by Oscar Bluemner that had been in storage for over twenty years. I plan to hang this piece in my office.

I came across an oil abstract painting Why Get An Abstract Oil Artwork - There are several reasons why people may choose to purchase abstract oil paintings for their homes, even if they don't have a formal background in art evaluation. Here are some common motivations for buying abstract art: Filling empty wall space: Bare walls can be unappealing, so homeowners often opt for abstract art to break up… dated 1947, painted by Louis Bassi Siegriest. I liked the composition; it felt strangely soothing. The artist signed the back of the painting. Although it was a bit out of my price range, I bought it anyway.

Commerce Winds is the title of an abstract painting I bought from artist Joanne Riddle while I was in Connecticut. The piece was large, so I had to have it shipped via freight to my home. The blue in the painting was so vivid, and the entire composition was utterly inspiring.

Last year, I bought an abstract painting for my sister-in-law. The artist was Leonardo Nierman, and he used oil as his medium. I purchased the piece unframed and took my sister-in-law to a framer to choose the frame.

I tried to buy an abstract painting from our town’s mayor. I offered him $2,000 for the modernist, abstract, and colorful figure. The artist used red, white, and blue, and I wanted to get it for my stepmother. She would have loved it, but the mayor was unwilling to part with it.

My mother has decorated her home in a style that she liked in Santa Fe. I bought her a large abstract painting by her favorite artist, Lou Monti. She has seen his work in various galleries and always raves about them. She was overjoyed when she saw the painting I bought for her hanging in her living room.

I once dated a guy who had a signed abstract painting by Robert Gilberg on his wall. I noticed something different every time I saw it. That painting had an allure that I can’t quite explain. He was always looking for art and changing out abstract works on his walls, but that particular piece always stayed. I guess he was drawn to it as well.

The abstract painting that I bought for my older brother didn’t work in his apartment. I ended up buying a painting that was slightly too large for the intended space, and the colors didn’t work in the only area that fit the size.

I ended up selling that abstract painting in the same place I had bought it, on eBay! I made a profit on the sale. There was more information in my auction about the artist, Richard Diebenkorn, than in the auction where I won. I think the extra hour of research I spent increased the abstract painting’s value.

I learned a long time ago that an abstract painting is worth exactly as much as someone is willing to pay for it. I have friends who simply cannot be convinced of this basic truth. I believe that if nobody wants a particular abstract painting, then it is worth nothing.

My brother used the proceeds from the sale of the unwanted abstract painting to find another piece. He ended up with an abstract collage created in the late 1930s. I liked it when I saw it, and it worked beautifully in his office.
