Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Painted on the day of his death, Leonard Nimoy is displayed here as his most beloved character, Mr. Spock. This is no ordinary acrylic piece - it is a heavy work, based on canvas board, covered in plaster. The plaster is used as a fresco for acrylic and silver leafing. This painting is alive in so much as it changes with the lighting due to the reflective quality of the real silver leafing that makes up so much of the highly textured background. This is a piece for touching as well as viewing.
I was so moved upon hearing of Mr. Nimoy's death as he was a huge part of my life - as well as being an icon to so many. It didn't take me long before I pulled out the paints and began this painting in honor of his beautiful spirit.
And of course, there was no better name in the world than "Live long and prosper." So, there it is.
