This post is part of the How To Have the Perfect Abstract Art Website series. This is the first post in this series.
Abstract art can seem like a hard thing to sell. It’s often hard to tell what it’s about or why anyone would buy it. But that’s because you’re looking at it wrong.
If you’re trying to build a business, you need to look at your web site as a product and treat it as such. If you want to be successful, you need to make sure people understand what you’re selling. So how do you sell something abstract?
The first thing you have to do is show people what they’re buying. Let me ask you a question: how much abstract art do you own? Unless you’re an artist or collector, probably none. But that doesn’t mean no one wants it! Maybe they don’t know they want it yet, but if they see it, they will want it!
So here’s what I did on my website: I put up pictures of my abstract paintings and then tried to let people know where else they could get that kind of art.*
Abstract art is an appealing and profitable niche. There are many amateur artists producing abstract art offering it for sale. However, the better abstract art you have to offer, the more competition you will face.
Unfortunately, there are many options to consider when creating an abstract art website and some of those options can be confusing. For example, there are different types of abstract art that should be considered. Each style of abstract art has its own set of guidelines and rules for selling it online. You do not want to make a mistake with your choices or you may end up doing more harm than good to your business. Many of these mistakes can result in lost revenue opportunities.
There are also a lot of different ways that you can go about building your website. The most important thing is to create a site that is going to bring in traffic and sales for your business. In order to do this, there are certain steps that you will need to take that will help ensure success.*

Abstract art is a way of making art that is non-representational and uses geometric shapes, color, line, texture and form. In my previous blog post I talked about what abstract art is, but in this post I want to discuss the different ways that abstract art can be created.
In order to create abstract art in any form you need to know the properties of: shape, color, line and space. You should also understand how these elements relate to one another.
Shape: Shape is the most obvious element of abstract art because it’s literally the shape of something. It can either be an actual representation of a three-dimensional object like a sphere or cube or it can be more elusive like an amorphous blob or cloud. The more abstract the shape the less recognizable it is as a specific object.
If you’re trying to make an abstract website design then you have many choices for different kinds of shapes you can use. You might choose to use circles and squares or amorphous blobs for your design elements. The kind of abstract website design you choose will depend on what kind of message you want to project with your website.
Color: Color is one of the most important parts of creating any type of abstract design because without color there really isn
As a whole, on the other hand, abstract art is very modern. It’s been around for about one hundred years. And in that time, it has reached some kind of peak, and now it’s just kind of hanging out.
It’s kind of like the Internet. The Internet was an idea that comes from the future. It was going to change everything. But then you spend twenty-five years building it, and when you’re done, what do you have? You have this big network connecting all these interesting people together. And those people say “Hey! Let’s start blogs!” And they blog for a while. And now the blogosphere is this big community of people who blog, who are connected by their blogs. And that’s cool and all, but it’s not really changing everything.
And then someone says “Hey! Let’s put our blogs on Tumblr!” And now there are these big communities of bloggers on Tumblr where they can collaborate and share information and all that good stuff. That’s cool too. But it doesn’t seem to be changing everything either.
So maybe abstract art is the same way. Maybe it got most of the way to modernism back in the twenties and thirties and forties and fifties,
