    Thanks to everyone -- don't ask how it was done, I could not replicate it if I tried. I hope he sees it and likes it!

    Never hurts to send him a private message with a link so even if it disappears back a few pages he can find it. He was in a couple days ago and could well have missed it. He really ought to see it.

    Hey Al, thanks for the PM directing me here. I've hardly been able to peek in for a couple of weeks at least with bunches of stuff going on so I'm happy you followed up DA's PM advice.

    As everyone predicts I LOVE the painting. It's really a rich experience for me - full of exploratory avenues, contrasting lines, forms, color and texture, playful design and architectural schemes, and a full-on jumble of chaotic yet organized jumble of joyful fun. I most particularly like that it carries you into so many visual directions. It compels you to wander around in it and find seemingly hidden touches that surprise and somehow make you smile with recognition as they are suddenly revealed.

    And in many ways it asks more questions than gives answers - sort of a viewpoint of life that I live in and I suppose informs my peculiar artistic sensibilities. In my view you captured that perspective spot on with both charm and visual wit.

    I think maybe Peter said it best: "He's going to flip his lid." My lid is flipped. I love the homage dearly and thank you bunches for it.
    Appreciation fosters well-being. Be well.

    I could not be more happy that you like it Byron -- I was a bit concerned that you might find it too cheeky, but I mean the tribute sincerely. Your work knocks me out.

    Given the complexity of working in so many layers and programs, I will now happily return to the simple use of chalk and knife and leave this style of work to the master! Al
