... this commissioned piece is for one of our favorite friends and a true patron of the arts - someone who doesn't just talk about supporting the arts, but actually buys some! We like it even better that he's buying it from us. Hooray!
It's a design that is clearly for an Irishman as you can see by the Celtic elements in the monogram. The themes include hops and wheat to represent his fondness for fine ales. And because Dr. K. is a cyclist and a reader, we included bicycle parts and book symbols in various subtle areas of the design.
Here it is coming together!
Next we'll show the building process and then it's on to the framing.
