Guinness + Mary Blair + My Wife = Perfection

So I know this is a little off season, but this morning I stumbled upon this piece I made a few years back inspired by a Mary Blair panting and my wife Crystal.  Crystal and I had just spent some time in Ireland, Scotland, & England with some friends drinking as much beer as possible, and my wife's love for Guinness got me inspired.  I knew there was a really great illustration that Mary Blair did of a girl holding a large pitcher of fruit juice, so I thought I'd swap the girl for "My Girl" and the Fruit Juice for a nice Pint of Guinness.  You can find the great Mary Blair original with a google search and you'll see I tried to keep mine as similar in style as hers, with the obvious few tweaks.
