Tridgeon!  I really loved seeing your work up close at Canterlot Gardens last year.  I tend to research as many of the artists as possible at cons, just so I know where to go first for my favorite arts.  Thought the Nightmare Moon painting was just spectacular and I was so hoping to purchase it, but as I walked up it was being sold before my very eyes.   As luck would have it at the end of the con on Sunday, as is sort of 'tradition' now to watch a bunch of episodes after the con (see Bronycon 2012), there was a guy in the bar with a laptop playing episodes!  He also started a 'swall of wag;'  decorating with multitude of pony on the laptop and scaling up the wall even.  Right above the laptop was that painting.  Heh, pretty funny coincidence!  But I digress from cool stories in my head.  So I loved your art so much I purchased a set of prints of 'The Standard Model' with a full intent of one day getting them nicely framed.  Well, finally last month I put dollars to action, pulled the trigger, and I now have them hanging on my wall. Truly the centerpiece of pony art in my house.

I believe in the chaos and bustle of Bronycon this year, I might have missed your booth in the vendor hall. Meant to stop by and say 'hi'.  Obviously I would not have been able to share the awesomeness of the frame job, seeing as it was still a thought in my head, but regardless of that thanks again, love your paintings! :D

You've made my day with this news and I love the frame you picked out! Bronycon was awesome, and yes I was there as well, but I can see how it would be easy to miss someone in all the bustle. Thanks for all the kind words and the awesome follow-up, it always makes me happy when the customer is happy!

Oh thanks so much and no problem at all! :D  Indeed, the frame was chosen off the Micheal's wall, I saw it and knew it would be perfect on the baby blue walls.  The other frames in my house are all either Micheal's store bought or HomeSense 'stroke of luck' bargoons.  The matte was a bit of a fluke actually, the girl had yet to put a matte in the computer program so it was all black.  The colours popped out so much better than with an all white matte, which made it a far too bright to look at.  Her idea was to have an under matte of white showing through the top black one, and of course my idea all along was to separate each individual print just by a centimeter or less, to create a cool 'six pane window' effect.

This isn't elements. This could be the 6 fundamental particles (or in this case, elements) that make up an organized universe. Reference the right-hand side image of this page [link]

yes I understand how elements work (and am aware of the actual standard model though understanding that is beyond me) this is a fan work for a cartoon and for a youtube music video and is not to be taken in a serious educational manner

why the heck do I have to explain this

fine, I'll rename them to the subatomic particles of harmony

together with an upquark and at least 300 GeV/c2 level the muons of laughter and honesty, the leptons of loyalty and kindness with the boson of generosity forms the boson of magic! (degrading into a photon and three electrons)
