When this artwork was first revealed it received a lot of derision and there was controversy.  I, personally, love it. I always have and over time I have come to love it more.  Love the picture, Thanks Dee.

Thanks Grumpy. Yes, I read up on the controversy, which is understandable. But art takes chances.. I like the piece a lot. How huge it is compared to that little green light! D
