The first piece is titled, "A Famous Grandson". It is a professionally done watercolor with secret messages and instructions on how to follow along to solve a puzzle. It is released to the public in the form of a pdf (an electronic document with a picture of the art).
A small section of that painting is currently being used as the profile photograph for this site. You will receive the entire photograph when your purchase of the pdf is confirmed.
