OH, I'll be glad to show it off!
after I actually open it Christmas morning (my family is traditional that way).
...but I did send him a handfull of randoms, figuring one or two for the wall, one or two to throw, etc. Looks like those will be surprises (I feel like a kid again).
I am just SO impressed with all the work in this thread. For those who lurk and admire here (like I did), many of these guys do commission work, so I suggest you give 'em a chance with your canvases, too!
