I FINALLY got the painting finished - not sure I'd call it magic, but I like the way it turned out. I had a few panic attacks along the way, but the beauty of paint is that you can just paint over your mistakes. Here's the finished product:
I envision it in their dining room, sitting on a floating black shelf with some vases or candlesticks along side!
