We were biting our nails wondering if this large investment would work in our home. We are SO pleased. The paintings are large--40" square. It does not look like an artist actually brushed paint on the canvas--it's pretty smooth; maybe screen printed or computerized painting (I am not an artist, so can't say for sure). But it is still lovely. The sides have the wrap-around coloring--so no white edges. The colors are perfect and very deep in intensity. We were looking at the red/burgundy as the main accent color for us. There are several shades of burgundy/red--so it will match most every shade that you need. The pictures are light--we only used one nail hanger per picture. We have them sitting over a couch on a 10-foot wall--it's a perfect fit. The yellow/gold on the top of the paintings is a little lighter that what is shown on the screen, which works great for us.
