Oil paintings for sale are available in a wide variety of genres.  Quality galleries offer various kinds of oil paintings for sale.  From works by contemporary artists to reproductions of famous pieces, there are a plethora of choices for anyone seeking to purchase one of these pieces of art.  There are a few things to keep in mind in order to make a prudent purchase.

Choosing just the right piece of art can be a daunting task.  Consideration must be made as to what type of piece is desired and needed in a particular space.  This depends on the mood that is being created and the audience that will view the piece on a daily basis.  The style and genre of any artwork is one of the first aspects that must be dealt with in the acquisition of any oil paintings for sale.  There are a large variety of different types of works from which to choose.  These include, but are not limited to, still life, impressionism, modern, and folk art.  In addition, the subject of the work plays an important role in the mood that the piece produces.  Various subjects are available in many different genres.  Horses, flowers, and landscapes are all examples of different subjects that can be obtained when purchasing oil paintings for sale.
 
When ordering oil paintings for sale, a customer needs to also choose the type of shipping he wishes to use.  This will depend largely on whether or not he is buying it un-stretched, pre-stretched, or framed.  When a piece is bought un-stretched it can be rolled and shipped in a cylinder tube.  There is no stiff framing to deal with and the shipping is a relatively easy business.  On the other hand it is good to have the product ready to hang when it arrives.  For this to happen it must be pre-stretched over a frame before it is shipped to its final destination.  A carefully chosen frame finishes off the piece nicely and may be a desirable addition to the purchase.  The framing can alter the final appearance of the product, so one may want to explore various types, colors and finishes of available frames.  If a painting has black lines in it, they will be startlingly apparent when framed by black painted wood.  This could be the desired effect, but if it is not, a more subdued color may be preferred for framing the artwork.  Paying attention to the subtle elements of the piece will help ensure the desired effect when the framing surrounds the final product.

No matter what the venue for a new piece of artwork, there are a few things that must be considered when purchasing oil paintings for sale.  Reflecting on the space and who will be viewing the work is one of the most important aspects in ensuring a successful purchase.  A buyer must first know the mood and atmosphere that is desired in the final outcome.  Following this is the choosing of genre, subject, framing, and shipping.   Achieving a good purchase is possible when all of these aspects are kept in mind.
