Help support a brilliant artist

paradigmshifty pointed me to ursulav's Live Journal some time ago, and I'm glad he did.

She's a brilliant artist, and also a brilliant writer, and her LJ is very much a fascinating read. However, being a freelance artist, her income tax is "interesting" to say the least. Despite throwing lots of money at the tax man to cover her tax bill, she's recently been hit with a rather large demand to give the US Tax Department lots of money.

So, to that end she's doing a limited edition jumbo print of The Taxman. The piece is 13 inches by 19 and will cost $25 US. I asked and she estimated postage to Australia to be about $20, so for $45 US I can get a fantastic piece of art, and help support a fantastic artist to boot. With the strength of the Australian dollar at the moment, that will be less than $60 total, and I would be paying a hell of a lot more for a generic print at a local art shop.

For more information there's the actual LJ entry, plus there's her art site, Metal and Magic. Go check it out, you know you want to.

Ordered and paid yesterday. Bought two other prints at the same time and she still only charged me $20 postage !!

I've ordered my Taxman print. But I then got carried away and ordered these too:

Billy vs Satan

Ninja Frogs

Envy

My bank account is going to hurt - those are originals, not prints - but the lady's art is worth it.

Yup envy was one of the prints I bought. Don't have the budget for the originals :) Good thing or we may have argued over it ...

I was thinking of getting the Ninja Frogs as a print for C's next birthday. :)

If you do so decide, let me know. I'll pick out one of the others and pay for it and half the postage.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
