I’ve managed to come across a handful of beautiful handmade abstract paintings for the living room whether you are looking to hang something striking over the sofa, or just bring a much-needed feeling of life into a drab or blase environment. Better yet, these are real genuine paintings and not prints or “repros.”
What better way to breathe new life into a room than a piece of work handcrafted by a talented artisan, and not a machine or printout?
I make my own paintings to decorate the house, over the years I’ve developed a large enough collection to be able to switch out work periodically when I want to change the look of the room. If this is you and you’re seeking to change up your living room, you will enjoy what I have in store.
The works below are not only beautiful and original, they are all panoramic view sized so they fit right above a sofa with flair. They also come with their own hanging hardware so won’t have to search far and wide for wall art hanging tools either.
This one is a great choice if you like the “impasto” approach with lots of textured layers of paint applied with a palette knife. The result is work that is modern, abstract yet totally jumps off the canvas at you! I like how the flowers in the foreground really stand out among the ones in the background which are softly blurred .
There are also ten to twelve other designs in this list so it was hard for me to pick a favorite – they are all so well done!
This nature and lake scene looks really amazing! The contrast between the blue mountain, the snow-dotted trees, and the lake reflection with the beautiful reddish orange tree on the other side is so striking! Makes me think of “fire and ice”. And the way the tree’s reflection shows on the water really makes this painting come to life.
I had a hard time seeing this one as “abstract” because the further away the picture gets, the more “real” it looks.I know I would hang this one up on my wall any day!
I love pictures of trees as they are a timeless subject matter…this one has petals and leaves that dance across the canvas. Utilizing a style that embodies impasto and outward protrusion of the subject matter, this is a painting that will be sure to get noticed, and you are sure to get compliments.
Well guys these are three of the most interesting abstract handmade paintings I’ve come across, which one is your favorite?
