Can you change the size of the painting?

Each painting has a specific size and orientation that helps adjust to the size of your wall, but every design only has one size, so you may not have a large or small version of your preferred painting.

Can you overwrite paintings?

Minecraft paintings are also considered entities, meaning if you put too much in one place, it could cause some amount of lag. Furthermore, because they are categorized as entities, paintings can simultaneously exist in the same space with other blocks with a collision box that does not intersect with its hitbox.
