Most often in a home, the living room is the most used room of all. For this reason a living room should feel comfortable and inviting. Abstract art, landscape and seascape oil paintings are good choice. An abstract oil painting can stir emotions in all of us if we can look deeper into the colors, lines, and movement of the art. For a bold statement you may want to look at red abstract art. Landscapes and seascapes oil paintings are soothing and comforting. They also expand a room, especially if they have a horizon line off in the distance of the picture or if it is a window scene.
