The moment I saw the painting on the site I purchased it without thought. When I opened the package and placed it in my bedroom I immediately identified with it and it complemented my room immediately. My only regret is not having purchased the next bigger size. Nonetheless, I'm blown away by it's quality and the way it makes me feel when I look at it. I'm not even into artwork! This is a must buy if the painting strikes you from the beginning as it did to me! Kuddos to the artist!
I was looking for a contemporary pairing the same size as the one that I previously ordered at Overstock a few weeks before. I had purchased Picasso's nude woman. Beautiful! Quality, Value and piece of art - price ***. I found this one and flipped when I saw it online. It looks more dimensional and alluring on line. The painting was flat and non-dimensional - did not deliver the same impact in person.
Here is the worst part: I eagerly opened the box to view the painting. It smelled so bad - an overwhelming chemical smell. I thought it was the plastic wrapping and box - it was. So I ran it out to the dumpster in the front of my condominium and ran back in. There it was - non alluring but eye catching. I placed it in the corner of the room and went out for an hour. When I returned my entire condo smelled like chemicals. I have an upscale condo in an upscale neighborhood in Palm Beach County Florida. I moved in here in the past year and purchased all new furniture and had the place repainted and refurbished. There were plenty of odors and chemical smells in my place while all of the work was being done. In my entire life I have never smelled anything more overwhelmingly toxic. I had to put it outside on my porch. I called Overstock and they are sending a return label. Don't even try it out. It's going to be such a hassle for me to send this back. I have to get a box and bubble wrap - the box that it was in was thrown in the dumpster in the rain.
I would be very careful when purchasing this line: Maxwell Dickson. The agent at Overstock indicated that it must have been just painted.
Aside from the
Although i recognize that Maxwell Dickson is more of a decorative wall factory production company; that is not to say there is anything wrong in that. I own several of his pieces and enjoy the colors and themes of those pieces. This particular one; I wish I did not buy!
I find it depressing and somewhat trashy; especially in a room where other pieces bring me so much joy. Even another one by this" artist"; but this is not what I thought it would be, and bought it after reading a review; I guess each to his own.
Despite that; the color and framing are fine, and nothing wrong with it; I just get a bad feeling when I look at this "wall ART". I DO LIKE THE 3 OTHER PIECES OF MAXWELL DICKSON I HAVE PURCHASED FROM OS VERY MUCH.
So. take a good look at it, and if you like it; buy it; just not for me; but too much trouble to return.
