The background is finished and I've decided to take off with a really transparent image inspired from some of the vintage photos I've collected over the years. I was totally focused on building a western themed piece this year but I just couldn't locate a resource image that struck my fancy. I think the ornate background will look better with a soft, female portrait. I hope to let the background show through and use minimal colors.
The banner is supposed to be finished by this weekend so I best get busy!
