Mona, you are cracking my sh** up! Great story. Anyway, I looked at the guy's work. He's pretty technically skilled. Although I think I understand Neil's expression as he receives the painting. I would feel like a dorkus malorkus holding a super dramatic painting combining my image with waves crashing onto the shore. Not to dog the guy or anything (if you saw the crap I have to design every day...), but that's just my opinion.
