My view of art, illustration, and photography (with a thought or two thrown in) --to remember the beauty that inspires me and to show that I do, indeed, have good taste :)
Most of the works you'll find here are not my own, unless otherwise noted. I have a huge respect for artists and try to give credit due. If I violate anyone's wishes, I'll promptly remove posts as requested. Please note: while I try to share what is true, honorable, lovely, and commendable, some links may lead to offensive content.
