As a sidenote, the word "gift" still strikes me as a native german-speaker strange, since it means poison/venom in German. So let's venture into artists with whose work you can poison your loved-ones with this year! :) Please note that I of course selected them very subjectivly and there are possibly hundreds and thousands of other artists to buy from out there.
It's no secret I love wire-wrapping. Ula Kapala makes very affordable, playful pieces which range from steampunk to gothic to somewhere in between. Some examples of her work:
She does comissions, but remember that those take time, so it might take longer un

Dearest devious Deviants,
Ten years ago today – 18th April 2004 – I logged in for the first time to deviantART :w00t:
This in quite unbelievable how quickly this time passed by. So many things had changed and yet some didn’t at the same time. Same with me and my works. Here I would like to tell you a little story of how one website changed my life and I hope dA lasts forever!
Well... to be honest it all didn’t really begin in 2004. When I was a little girl and then young woman I had this huge passion for writing: poems, essays, short stories and I even wrote a short book for children about my dog’s
A collection of Traditional Collage Art.
Per About.Com, Collage derives its name from the French verb coller, to glue. The work of art is made by gluing things to the surface. Collage became an art form during the Synthetic Cubist period of Picasso and Braque. At first, Pablo Picasso glued oil cloth to his surface of Still Life with Chair Caning in May of 1912. He glued a rope around the edge of the oval canvas. Georges Braque then glued imitation wood-grained wallpaper to his Fruit Dish and Glass (September 1912). Braque's work is called papier collé (glued or pasted paper), a specific type of collage.

The portrait is, as you can see, another unfinished painting, this time by Marie Cassatt.
It’s called “The Long Gloves”
I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
You have shown us all extraordinary imagination working with Abbott Handerson Thayer’s unfinished painting.
Previously there was also such a variety and such inventive use of William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s painting “Work Interrupted.” and with Gustav Klimt’s unfinished painting.
How will you “finish” Cassatt's?
What will she be doing?
What may she be thinking about?
Where will she be?
What will you
I've been embroiled in a massive project--an altered book--for months and months. It didn't start out like that, but it turned into one of those "art heals" things along the way. If you have things to think about, I suggest you try your hand at an altered book. If you've never done one, I've written a bunch of tutorials on how to get started with the prep and the structure on my blog at http://lauratringaliholmes.blogspot.com. Okay, it's a little intense over there--I won't dissemble. There are 10 parts to the "Don't Get Jittery On Me" blog series in all and not all are about technique. Some are about that aforementioned "art heals" thing. Yo
