I am very happy with this purchase. Like the first reviewer, I too had issues with the cardboard and plastic packaging sticking to the painting and pulling some of the paint off, but not noticable. Overall the colors are very vibrant. However, what I thought was going to be a deep blue turned out to be more of a greenish-blue but still very happy. I have received many compliments (from both men and women) on how much they enjoy the piece.
