Dan, only you could take a cardboard box cut it up and make art. I love the background shades - goes so perfectly with the brown of the box.

Bravo Dan! I'm glad this made it, as you are such a wonderful teacher to us all on how to "think outside the box".
Your style and subjects never cease to amaze me, it's one thing I look foward to the most everyday at BP, waking up and seeing what you've submitted. Excellent work, my friend! :0)
