A current trend I’m seeing these days is abstract canvas art. Abstract canvas art is not new on the scene for design styles such as modern and eclectic but I have been surprised at how common it has become in the traditional decorating arena.
What comes to mind when I think of traditional artwork is a very orderly print in a nice frame not an expressive painting done in bold hues on stretched canvas. However, here are some examples of traditional spaces breaking the mold and showcasing abstract canvas art.

I must admit, I’m one of those annoying people who when they see abstract art pieces often says, “oh, I could have done that”! I’m going to finally put my money where my mouth is and try it–for reals–like tonight! I’ve picked out a $329 abstract canvas art piece that I’m going to try and replicate for $20. Come back for either a great tutorial or a good laugh! Hoping it will be a tutorial!:-)
So what do you think? Does abstract canvas art fit with this style? Or do you think it’s a little too artsy fartsy for the historically classic, calm traditional genre????
