Saw this on the homepage just now. WOW WOW WOW!! I'd love to have this one on a wall. And THAT is the ultimate complement for me. I'm very fussy about my art collection in my home office. Ok, so it's MOSTLY Greyhound paintings and drawings from friends that are artists, but I'd still put this in there for the impact and color. Dramatic AND fun!!!
