This was a birthday present for my husband and was the most beautifully wrapped present I have ever seen. Thank you so much!
After gifting some of Johns work to others, I had to have one of his pieces for myself. All of his work is exquisite and I am sure you will love it as much as my gift recipients and I do. I am saving to buy more of his works of art for myself.
