What a great job you guys did.

Although it's not a piece I'd put in my living room - it is definitely creative,imaginative and textural.

Love the whimsy.

This is a detailed description of my "art background." But long story short, I learned from my father and grandmother.
Oh and good luck with your piece, I think it's great!

This is amazing! From the first picture you can't experience the size until you see it in the back of the truck. This is so very cool, good luck!

P.S. Feel free to share my Wish Bomb link, I would be tickled!
