Golf art is the perfect gift for the golf enthusiast, however, it can also be a great accent to your office décor or your home's décor. There are a lot of different art mediums that you can select from that have golf themes. There are original golf paintings, there are golf themed prints, there are golf posters, and there are golf themed stained glass pieces. The type of art that you select will most likely depend on why you are buying the art, where the art will be displayed, and your art budget.
Professional Golf Art
One artist that is known for her golf themed paintings is Linda Hartough. Linda's paintings have been the official artwork for several charity tournaments and professional golf tournaments like the 2003 U.S. Open. Her golf course art pieces are available as original oil paintings or as art prints, and they range in themes from major golf course to breathe-taking landscapes. Her prints make a great corporate gift for golf lovers and golf professionals.
Tom Fort is another golf artist that specializes in landscapes and golf course paintings. His work has been commissioned by many major and local golf course and tournaments. His commissioned work usually focuses on the prize hole of the course or a panoramic view of the most attractive vantage point on a particular golf course. His work is available as either original oil paintings or as prints.
Do-It-Yourself Golf Art
If you would like to transform one of your own golf memories into a work of art, but you don't have $3,000 to spend on an original oil painting, then there is a cheaper alternative. If you have a photograph of your golf memory then you can have this photo printed on canvas for between $20 and $75, or you can have the photograph turned into a real painting for under $200. There are several online and local photo shops that offer these services. After you get your canvas back from your photo shop you will need to stretch it on stretcher bars and then frame it. This will prevent the paint from cracking and chipping.
