Bowling anyone?

The AAF Greenvile is having an event called the Tiki bowl, and they asked for local artists to decorate bowling pins to be auctioned off. I had so much fun doing the bust for Tatas on Trade that I decided a bowling pin would be fun. Sadly I kept putting it off for so long, that I didn't leave myself much time to paint it! Here is the almost finished product. True to my style, I went searching for vintage bowling images, and styled the piece after vintage bowling shirts. I have no idea what the other offerings to the auction will be, but I am pleased with mine.

LOVE IT! Love the color and love the image! Is there any way to seal it? So it is shiny? Would be really cool.

Thanks Sara! Yes, I am planning to put a gloss medium over the top so that it shines a bit. Just need it to dry a little longer.
