Are You Rolling in Dough? Win the Lotto?
Then Buy Me This, Would Ya?

Kinuko Y.Craft, she who has done those magnificent covers we've come to associate with the writer Patricia McKillip, did the yummy bit at left. It's called "Saint."

Don't you just love the way she mixed Titian's VENUS OF URBINO with Rousseau-ish flora and fauna?

I think it's a treat for the eyes.

If you're not familiar with Ms. Craft's work, you can browse the gallery at Graphics Collectible, where some of her fine work is for sale. Or just google her. Or browse McKillip titles or Craft's name at amazon.com. (She's also done illustration for children's books, so she's listed. I own her Cinderella.)

So, if you have about 10K you've got no use for, feel free to get me art for Christmas. (Psst. I also wouldn't mind any of those cool McKillip covers or the Art In The Style of Picasso bit.)
