Ideas for Canvas: Pop Art and More

You might feel like one of those people who was born with no creative or artistic abilities whatsoever. And for you, isn't the Internet wonderful? You can get tons of ideas for how to decorate your home. For example, if you wanted to hang a famous painting or have a quote put onto canvas, you could get that done online. You can even have your own photos made into canvas pop art.

Famous Painting

One thing you can do with canvas is to get a print of a famous painting for your living room or another area of the house. You need to keep in mind the general mood you are going for as well as the color scheme of the room. For example, if you are going for a beach or ocean theme, then a scenic picture of the water itself might be good. But if you have a general turquoise color scheme or are focused on sea turtles, then you probably don’t want a picture of a red crab on the sand. It might not look and feel right. If you are using brown tones with blue accents, you can also find an original piece of canvas art to decorate your room. It can be more impressive to have original works of art than generic prints. 

Use a Quote

If there is some philosophy or motto you live by, or something you want your family to be reminded of frequently, you can put that onto a canvas. You can paint it on yourself, use a vinyl, or order it online. Many people use religious quotes or ideas. It can be something to remind your family to stay positive, or it can be the popular “Keep calm and carry on” message. If you don’t want to use a quote, you can also use a word or name, and stretch that across several frames. For example, with the name “Rockwell,” you can stretch it into two separate pieces of canvas, and use colors that match the room.

Make Pop Art

For those who are less artistically inclined but want to use a specific personal family photo, you may want to find a place that will create canvas pop art. You can take a photo of your son or daughter and stylize it into an Andy Warhol piece. The options are endless; whether you’re going for a playful comic-style picture or something with a grungy feel, you can decorate your home however you want.
