Very poorly made.
I bought all three sets the end of October when they were first aired. I opened one, and both pictures worked fine. Didn't open the other two until early December, and there was one picture in each that did not work. Since it was after the 30 day return time, I am stuck with them. Extremely poor quality merchandise. Very disappointed with these pictures and with The Shopping Channel for hawking them. However, looking at the other reviews, I guess I am lucky that two-thirds are working. Also, the art work is very nice.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Looked good on TV but...
Nice pictures but poor quality. Switch on one of the two pictures was covered with glue which I have to scrape and peel off in order to switch the unit on. The other picture's timer does not work. The unit never shuts off by itself. I guess I'm stuck with them because they were bought for my grand daughter for Christmas. She loves the pictures of Santa and the Train so I won't be taking then away from her for a refund. Otherwise I most certainly would have. I hoped TSC would monitor the quality of the products they sold more closely.
Has Potential Shame the timer won't work
from Vancouver (BC)
I bought all 6 different paintings as presents for friends and family. The first one I unwrapped was the light-house that I wanted to keep for myself. It looked oddly crooked on the battery compartment. as if it was put on crooked and one corner was jutting out making the back of the painting not flushed when I tried to hang it up on the wall. Upon closer inspection, one screw was missing and the reason why it was crooked was the other screw was screwed on sideways!!!! Where's the quality control on this one????Then I turned it on and expected the timer to turn it off after 5 hours like the spokesperson said it would on TV but it never did. It stayed on for a whole day until I turned it off manually. The timer still hasn't worked even though it's been over a month and I turned it on every now and then to test it.I would buy it if you just wanted a painting and not expect anything else out of it. But if you're attracted to the features they advertised, then save your money as I would not recommend it.
Mr. Christmas Illuminart
By Road Runner
Very poor quality. Battery housings were the cheapest thing I have ever seen. I have bought numerous products from TSC and this by far is the most disappointing one. Could not be bothered to make a trip to the post office to return.

Bought 2 sets and had to send one back as the santa was upside down. The timer on the other set does not switch off. Pictures are nice but needs much more illumination. Six batteries in each one is a bit much.

I have purchased a number of Mr. Christmas items and have always been impressed with the quality but not so much with the illuminart. They are very pretty but made very poorly. The first pair I returned because the canvas was warped, the exchange pair were returned because the tree lights did not work properly and the holder fell off. Very disappointing.

I've ordered 5 sets of the 8"x10", one of the 16"x20" and two of the tapestries of the Mr Christmas illuminart pictures/wall decor. Absolutely stunning! I had an issue with one set only (the Train and Santa Christmas Tree), I returned them and they were promptly replaced. I would highly recommend these - very unique ... a sense of magic and nostalgia when looking at the twinkling lights and rich colours of the prints/pictures. Truly enjoyable.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
still waiting for Santa!
from Rothesay, NB
I ordered after seeing on the showstopper on 10/30/13, they arrived and the Santa did not work. I called and they told me to return and they will reshipped. So I did that on 11/05/13 on 11/26/13 I received a replacement-a box with 2 bottles of olive oil...yes that is what I said. So I call and got the same instructions...return the item and once they receive it back they will reship. I tracked the return on Canada Post and it was delivered and signed for at TSC on 12/02/13 and my account still has not even shipped. But yet I have paid my first installment for something I do not have. So I am still waiting for my Santa, I think the real Santa will arrive at my house before these canvas art. Very disappointed customer. :-(
from Sudbury ON
Love these pictures, my only disappointment they were smaller than I anticipated. Also wish there were more lights but the timer works like a gem.
I ordered 4 sets of these to give as gifts to family and friends. I sent 2 of the pictures off right away to family and friends as Christmas gifts as they live out of province. After doing so, I opened up the lighthouse for myself and discovered after the first 6 hours the batteries went dead as the timer did not work. The next night I turned on the picture again only to discover the lighthouse was not lighting up properly. I have boxed up the remaining sets and have sent them back as I dare not chance giving them as gifts to others. I have purchased other Christmas items from Mr. Christmas in the past and have always been pleased with my buys but must say I am really disappointed in these and think they will have to re-work their magic on this one. I would not recommend ordering these.
