The image to our left is one of many beach scenes that Canvas Art Plus offers and is among our most popular offerings.  Here are some tips to help you make an informed decision and find the perfect piece of art for your outdoor space:

  1. Determine your budget: Outdoor art can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, depending on the artist, size of the piece, and materials used. Determine your budget before you start shopping so you can narrow down your options and focus on pieces that fit within your price range.
  2. Consider the size of the piece: When purchasing outdoor art, it's important to consider the size of the piece relative to the space you have available. A large piece of art may look impressive, but if it's too big for your space, it can end up looking out of place or overwhelming. On the other hand, a small piece may get lost in a large outdoor area. Measure your space and keep these measurements in mind as you shop to ensure you find a piece that's the right size.

  3. Look for high-quality materials: Outdoor art is exposed to the elements, so it's important to choose a piece made with high-quality materials that can withstand the weather. Look for art made with UV-resistant inks and materials that are resistant to fading, cracking, or peeling. Waterproof materials, such as waterproof canvas are a good choice for outdoor art.

  4. Choose a style that fits your taste: There are countless styles of outdoor art available, from abstract to realism, so it's important to choose a piece that reflects your taste and style. Consider the overall aesthetic of your outdoor space and choose a piece that complements it.

  5. Research the artist: If you're purchasing outdoor art from a specific artist, take the time to research their background and experience. Look for reviews or testimonials from previous buyers to get a sense of the artist's reputation and the quality of their work. All of the artists featured by Canvas Art Plus have years of experience as a photographer or a painter.

  6. Check the warranty.  Any material (brick, siding, windows, etc.) exposed to the elements will have a limited life.  Typically, outdoor art should last a minimum of two years without fading and if hung away from direct sunlight, many more years.
