i tried to capture the texture but i suck with a camera. you'll just have to take my word for it. this one needs to be seen in person to truly appreciate all the work dan put into it.

so i went to my local fancy frame shop today...the place i take my special stuff. found something to my liking. she told me a week to 10 days. 1st time i've ever done this, but i wouldnt leave the piece with them. that's how attached i am to it. she said it was a strange request, but ok. they'll call me when the frame is in and they'll assemble it while i wait. this is the piece i grab if the house is on fire and i have all 3 boys in my arms and can only grab 1 piece of art.

shitty cell pics taken at the frame shop.

What most strikes me is the monsters eyes, particularly the one in the lower left just over the ravens head. You can see the flecks around the pupil. It looks so real it is spooky. Wicked nice, C.
