fair enough, just looks kinda clunky & inelegant with the 4 star base.IMHO Would look much better with the La Fonda base

Can't you just register for that site?

And don't paint your own Rothko, I hate it when people produce their own 'Modern/ Abstract' art, attempting to ape existing artists ("It's easy, just throw a load of paint at a canvas") it always look shit. Try and find somewhere that does large scale, good quality posters (Art galleries always have excellent reproductions of artworks on their posters, try the MOMA or Tate Modern's webstores) and get one professionally framed. It may cost a little more to frame it, but will always look better than a homemade effort. This is assuming you're not a painter though, or in any way artistic, which you might be?

Quick search:

And even though I hate Bridget Riley, this looks pretty good:

need a huge oil painting to hang over my sofa but it's impossible to find something nice that don't cost some serious dineros. so im also thinking about painting my own, even tho i have no experience painting on canvas. might be in over my head but it's going to be fun experimenting Cool

I'm just being a bit of a snob. The problem is, I'm an Art teacher (failed artist?) and frequently have to deal with people that think abstract pieces are easy to make as you just throw paint at a canvas and that's that, but there's all sorts of considerations (scale, compostion, colour, rhythm blah blah blah) that need to be made and I think that 99% of the time, abstract stuff looks shit and boring if/ when those things aren't considered. As I said, I'm just being a snob, anyone can make Art and if you like the outcome, then that is the only important thing.

you want affordable art?

http://www.degreeart.com/painting

you could enquire with your local college/uni and ask about shows too.

I found one of my favourite artists through that degreeart site.

I also like the idea of vintage posters - can be affordable.
