There are many reasons why oil paintings make great gifts. They are a timeless representation of life and are a medium that can be appreciated by everyone for their meaningful content. When it comes to finding people and occasions to give the gift of oil paintings, few occasions are better than for a house warming. A custom oil painting is a great real estate closing gift idea for a broker or even for a buyer.
When choosing an oil painting as a real estate closing gift, be sure to take a number of factors into consideration. First of all, it is best to avoid an oil painting with large, obvious shapes or bright, overwhelming colors. When purchasing a custom oil painting from an artist or an art expo, choose an oil painting that has a calming effect and uses more neutral tones. This way it can be used in any room, whether it is in an office or home.
Also, choose a custom oil painting that is not too large or too small. If an oil painting is too large or too small, it will have limited potential for use in certain rooms. Keeping the painting to a medium size will give the gift receiver some flexibility and options.
