Well it's worth the wait, Josh, to see your backdrop come up with the curvy buildings (Teonaht's Tsorelai Mundya, as it is represented in the Teach Yourself, has similarly treacherous buildings!), but some of the text is hard to read against the background.

Make this a visual that we can click on to get the full effect in a separate page. Then, you can crop a portion of your lovely painting, maybe the curvy blue buildings, and turn that into a tiled .gif file that would repeat across your page. With this limited color scheme, you could then choose your TEXT colors for contrast, and not have to worry about legibility. But either put your painting on a separate page that you provide a link to, or limit the color palette.
