    make a sketch and work in inches
    label the centre of the picture as P.

    that point must be (8-5 1/4) ft or (96-63) inches or 33 inches from the ceiling.
    from P to the top of the painting is 14 inches

    so from the top of the painting to the ceiling must be
    33 - 14 inches or 19 inches
