I had a very pleasant Christmas this past year (2008), and received many nice gifts, but two stood out as very memorable. First was a lovely quilt my wife made for me, and second was this painting by my brother Bruce (posing with his work in the photo below).
Bruce knows, from way back, that I am a huge fan of the original "Star Trek" tv series and of Leonard Nimoy's "Mr. Spock" character in particular... and so decided to paint this for me. I love it! And it is now hanging in a prominent place in my home (replacing a piece of TMNT art that had been hanging there for almost as long as we've been living in this house). - PL
