'Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'

'Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit.

'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.'

'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?'

'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”
― Margery Williams, “The Velveteen Rabbit

In Chiapas, Mexico, skeletal figures created by artist Isaac Cordal express stories far larger than their own diminutive sizes.

Happy Birthday to the visionary Czech illustrator of Art Nouveau, Alfons Maria Mucha.

It’s time! The silent auction goes Sunday to Wednesday. Here’s how it works:
Click the links to see what prints are available. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge them in your browser:
8x10s
8x12s
5x7s
Email me at visioluxus@hotmail.com with:
The print number(s)  
The quantity desired if there is more than one
The price you will pay for each print. The bid cannot be below $3. The bid can be different for each print.
What country the item will be shipping to so I can calculate shipping charges.
Highest bid wins, simple as that!
At the end of the day on Thursday I will email everyone regarding their bids, win or lose, and the total amount due. Payment is accepted through Paypal.
Please spread the word if you can, I would like to send all of these to good homes. It makes me sad to see them sitting on my shelf wasting away.
NOTE! There ARE prints available from the “Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife” series. I am clearing out the 8x10 and 5x7 sizes as these will no longer be available EVER AGAIN!

(Not to spam myself, but I will be reposting until the sale is over.)


Wonderful opportunity to get some fantastic art for as little as $3!  There’s even one of yours truly lurking amongst them ~ #12 & #29 - where I’m wearing the red Dracula’s Bride Gown.  Elisa’s prints make amazing gifts too, but email her soon, because the silent auction ends tomorrow!

Also ~ some thoughts on the importance of keeping artists’ credits/sources/signatures on their work: There are multiple photos from my original catalogue making the rounds online with the credits removed. It’s sad to see these old favourites cut down due to cropped out photo credits. Is it more “aesthetic” to get rid of a small text credit, and leave the entire photo off-center? Why do people think it’s o.k. to remove the equivalent of an artist’s signature? If people give their time, inspiration, $, and skill to create and share their art ~ art that speaks to you enough that you want to share it with others, please be considerate enough to leave their original signature/logos/credits in place. Otherwise, these just become ‘another random anonymous image’, which hurts artists on a variety of levels.

So of course ~ enjoy the art & feel free to share, but please leave original credits & sources in tact. To those who make the effort to add them back in, thank you ~ it’s truly appreciated!
