I put this one in my dining room. Wish I could scan the detail but it's way too large!

Here's an attempt at some close up detail with my camera.

NOTE: This is cut off on the sides b/c my scanner is not big enough! Used scanner instead of camera b/c image is better that way. Picure below is cut off on the top and bottom but you can see sides better on that one.

I drove 25 miles into the city to see my piece, "Lied", in the Chicago Art Open, only to find that the exhibit wasn't open on Tuesday! By sheer luck, 2 building employees strolled by and I saw they had keys to the gallery. I asked them to open it up just so I could take a picture of my piece! They were so sweet and I took just a few pictures in the 2 minutes I had!
Besides the sheer luck of running into the guys with the keys that let me into the gallery to share a moment with my work, I felt so very fortunate to display my work in a room full of amazing art by such diverse artists. What a great moment.
