That is beautiful Don, I love those rich colours.
I’m sure your buddy will love it also.
Thanks for showing.

Very nice work Don,
I too think that your friend will love this gift. Looks like a good place for a pile of nuts!

I like this one Don, you have really tight joints in the segmenting & a lovely rich colour to top it of, you will have a happy Buddy with this one :)
