    I have purchased several of her books for my grandkids, the illustrations are wonderful.

    If you like beautifully illustrated kids books, Mercer Meyer’s “A Boy, A Dog and a Frog” series are wonderfully illustrated, really funny, and have no words. Kids have to make up the story as they go along.

    Bernini's Rape of Porsepine -- The whole sculpture is incredible and can be seen at the Boughesi Gallery in Rome (go there at least once in your life). But look at the of the indentions made in her flesh. Looking at it in person, one swears it is fully allive.

    It is quite remarkable.
    I was fortunate enough to see it long ago.

    I've always been a huge fan of Nicholas Cage Duck Art.

    These two are in a current exhibition of Latin-American artists at a museum I volunteer at.

    You can see every individual hair on this girl’s head in this exquisite graphite drawing by Franklin Delgado

    And this one by Melvin Toledo just tickles the hell out of me (besides being technically well done):

    There’s some really interesting pieces in this exhibition.

    The Franklin Delgado drawing is beautiful.

    @honey_honey_12 if ever you find yourself north’ish of Atlanta, you would love the Booth Museum of Western Art.

    Yeah, a western museum in the foothills of north Georgia. But it’s a Smithsonian affiliate.
