I met a guy one time who claims he met Elvis (after his death). He was sitting in a mall and a guy walked up in an Elvis costume and accent.  The guy kinda looked away from him for a while and then turned and asked, "Do I know you?". The Elvis guy said, "Maybe so... "Finally the Elvis guy got up and walked off. This guy followed him and saw him get on a bus. While the bus was pulling out, the Elvis guy gave him a wink.

I still don't believe that story...

I like dark blue, but I agree that black could be even better.

But... how did you make it blue? Have you painted that yet, or is it photoshopped?

Put me down for blue. I think it looks good as a near monochromatic.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Some Elvis nut would love it.  Rather than ebaying your shit (got drunk last night, lack of vocabulary today), you should comission out your pieces.  I used to work in an art gallery and you wouldn't believe what people will pay (or do) for original work.

Cheers, Nice picture, Go blue.
Classic.

Or NOT love it.. since, I think the right eye is going on tour and forgetting to take Elvis with him.
