Really Big Paintings.

I’m wiped. I spent all day yesterday stretching some of my really big paintings for the Intermix Art party… I blogged about a huge painting the other day, and since thats all I have been doing lately, I thought I would make the case again. (I recently made one painting that is over 7′ x 7′- ITS INSANE. I love it. I’m going to have to assemble it IN the house of whoever buys it I guess!)

I know gallery walls are all the rage these days, but I would so much rather see one gigantic statement piece on a wall than a bunch of small ones. I like gallery walls in some places, but for maximum impact, there is nothing like a huge painting. I even like a big painting IN a gallery wall.

Here are a few rooms for your consideration:

  1. Oh I’m with you on the large statement piece!!! I would love one of your paintings above my sofa in my living room! I may have to add it to my christmas list;)

  2. I love the idea of one really large piece of art. Especially in some of the loft apartments I’ve looked at here in Boston, one of your 7×7 pieces would be amazing! Ahhh, oneday I’ll be able to afford a 7×7 piece from you :)

  3. Oh yea! I enjoy the impact of these pieces. The only problem with really big paintings is they need really big frames… ie really big $$$ But I guess they could be stretched too. I just love the look of the floating frame around a canvas.

      I know. I love a float frame too. But I don’t mind intranet canvas if the stretcher bars are really thick and nice.

  4. I definitely prefer the one large statement piece over a gallery wall! The third and the ninth are my favorites!

    youre gonna knock em deadddddd!!!!!

  6. no matter how much i love the artist, i love their work more when larger in scale.

    big art = better art.

  7. I totally agree with you that big art pieces make such a beautiful impact. Especially in a living room, dining room, or bedroom. I love the examples you showed. I think gallery walls look nice int spaces that are difficult to decorate like hallways.

    I would love to know more about the painting on picture # 4. It almost looks like it’s rose petals raining down. How am I able to purchase it?
    Thank you
