A highly logical Christmas gift

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

Wow...that's amazing! It's cool your brother is an artist as well. Anyone else in your family have an artistic streak?

It was one of Kevin Eastman's paintings, the cover to the first First Comics graphic novel format reprint collection, I think. -- PL
