Start an Art Collection: A how-to

We're sharing tips this week on how to start an art collection, because we know that it can be a little daunting to choose art for your child's room when there's so much to choose from!

A Focal Piece

It's likely that one canvas from our Oopsy Daisy collection will catch your eye immediately. That's a great place to start. Begin with a piece that makes you or your child smile, whether it's the subject matter or the colors. You want to build a collection that you love, first and foremost. The example we'll use is Cherry Blossom Birdies, by Winborg Sisters. It's one of our most popular pieces.

Choose a Theme

Once you've chosen your central piece of art, you can add others by building on a theme. Our website is set up to make this pretty simple to do: just look on the left side of the home page at "shop by" and "filters." Then, choose something about the first art piece that you'd like to focus on. Some ideas:

  1. Color: For Cherry Blossom Birdies, decide which color you want to call out. You could choose to add other pieces that play off the red in the canvas, or the blue, or the pink. Or all three! You can search oopsydaisy.com by color to see an assortment of pieces that will compliment the central piece.
  2. Subject Matter: What is it about the first piece that you like, in terms of subject? You might decide, for example, to go with a theme of nature, or birds, or trees or springtime. Again, you can search by subject on our site, either by using the "theme" dropdown or entering your word into the search box.
  3. Artist: Start a collection of works by an artist whose work you admire. Search our site by artist and find pieces that you like as much as the initial one you chose.

And now you've got an art collection!
