Gorgeous!! The index finger thing is a little akward for me, but that's being picky. I love it! I saw the thumbnail, and I thought it looked like a Michael S. creation- I was right! #3962826

Michael S. Swaffar 2/18/2007 9:27:00 PM

Thanks so much Kristine.. I know what you mean about the finger..LOL
This part of the shoot was about him painting the wall, not sure what this was but thought his face made up for it.
