Thanks All. I was initially going to go the standard solid stripe route but met a great airbrush artist here in Philadelphia (google Killer Kreations).

The scene is actually an adaptation from the 1629 painting "Triumph of Bacchus" by Diego Velazquez. The story behind the Greek figure "Bacchus" is pretty interesting and can be read on Wiki. The painting itself has always been one of my favorites so I thought it would be fun to explore on my "Triumph". Definitely going for the classic look and I certainly appreciate all the great work that the artist put into it. Photo of original artwork below.

Thanks again for looking!

A better shot of the full stripe (showing artwork as it fades to a textured look).
