This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Colorful abstract stylized pictures, a bit cartoony-looking to match the game. 3 objects, 78 variations in complete set. Mostly in warm colors, from splashy and bright to calm and peaceful. I've tried to make the choice wide: something for kids, something geometrical, something floral, etc. Textures compiled of free patterns from Colorlovers (see the credits below for complete list and links).

These are recolors of game objects - compositions are from base game and the other two from University life - so they have the same polygon counts as the original EA objects.

Game requirements
Although 2 of 3 objects were cloned from University life, I've made my recolors base game compatible. Built with patch 1.66, should work fine if you have the same or higher. Also tested on patch 1.63 by my friends and seem to work fine too. Unfortunately, can't guarantee anything about earlier patches, the sims 3 is tricky in this matter.

No need in "moveobjects"
Easy placing close to other decor or lightings, ignoring stairs and fence (which is never really interferes) without cheats. Because it's annoying sometimes how the game reacts on a painting under a balustrade, for example. Though use consideration and keep the distance reasonable

Horizontal painting has fully recolorable variation. Find plaid preset and apply any desired pattern to it to make your own painting.
Known weirdness about it. Since I just took off an overlay (top layer) of painting to let you to recolor it in Create-A-Style, you may notice that pattern will cover not only front but all the object including back side (normally back side is something like wood or paper). Not quite an issue, because nobody sees back side when painting is hanging on a wall, but I thought I'd say.

Here's the list of original patterns.
