  1. looks great! A humble suggestion that might make it pop a bit more, is if you make each star a different patriotic color (one red, one white, one blue). But overall, I really think this is great! Good job! : )

  2. Jay, these are magnificent; I'd love to have them in every room. I've got a George Ham print hanging above me as I type this (it's the Monaco 8 Aout 1937 racing one).
