In hanging paintings and pictures, consider that less is sometimes more. In other words, leave blank wall space between small groups of paintings.
Perhaps a small grouping of one large painting with two small ones, one above the other, next to it would work. Although tempting, don't succumb to the urge to fill the entire space with paintings. Small groupings such as the one suggested above; then adequate blank wall space; then perhaps another grouping, this time starting with the two small pieces (one above the other) next to the large piece.
Most importantly, hang pictures in a way that pleases you! The picture-hanging police, more than likely, will not enter your home to ticket you if you don't hang pictures "right."
