I ordered this painting thinking it would be perfect for our living room. The picture we received does not look like the picture online. The picture we received is muddier and darker and has a more dreary feeling overall. There isn't as much blue in the painting and the brown has run into the blue creating a weird greenish color. It also has weird globs of paint in the sky that I thought at first was water damage during hsipping. It looks like it should be sold at one of the painting expos they have at hotels. Unfortunately my husband saw it and likes it enough that it's not worth the hassle of returning, and it does still match our living room, but it gives the room a somewhat depressing feeling.Read More
