QUESTION: I will attach a picture now.  Thanks so much.

Answer
Cathy,

I refer to works such as this as 'sofa paintings,' something you used to purchase at a furniture store along with your new sofa.  Most were painted in factory studios by 'artists' that worked on many paintings at once.  It has no fine art value and little decorative art value.

Cheers, Brent
