Well, I like the artist a lot, and I do like the piece (it's hard to see any figurative elements in the photo I took), but it isn't my favorite, and I would not have bought that one were I buying (or even remotely able to afford) something from him. . It was a gift, and we also circulate what's hanging from our collection. That one is recent, which is also why it isn't framed yet. I need to get around to doing that.

Some stuff is custom, a couple of pieces were inherited. Most of the custom pieces are by friends and acquaintances, who have given us a discount, trade, or some pieces as gifts.
