Thanks guys, I hope that he loves it. I'm going to have to mail it because they live out of state - I hate that because I'm dying to see the look on his face when he sees it.

I used acrylics with some matte and irridescent mediums to keep them workable a bit longer. I'd love to work in oil, but it's just not feasible right now.
