I'd like to hang a 15 lb framed painting on drywall in an earthquake-proof way. Ideas?

I'd like to hang a 15 lb picture but there are no studs nearby, so I'll have to mount it on drywall. Any suggestions for a mounting setup that won't leave a large hole in the wall should a mild earthquake hit? Are two screws better than one larger screw in this case?
