Thank you to all the Artists who responded! This has totally been my favorite post so far...and, of course, it is Toby's too.
I not only wanted to have a little fun with these photos, but hoped to introduce you to some of my favorite Artists. I know that you, Dear Readers, are all Art Supporters because this is an ART BLOG and hundreds of you tune in every month to read crazy posts about matte medium and my current favorite shade of orange. So, please, click on the links below the photos and show these Artists some love: check out their websites, listen to their music, like their Facebook pages, follow their blogs and buy some ART.
Your senses are about to be assaulted with AWESOME!

(and, yes, I have been a victim of that tongue)
"How it is that animals understand things I do not know,
but it is certain that they do understand.
Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words
and everything in the world understands it.
Perhaps there is a soul hidden in everything and it can always speak,
without even making a sound,
to another soul."
Frances Hodgson Burnett, A little Princess
