it costs a lot more than it's worth and yet there is no substitute

(Collage art is so tricky for attribution, but "Heart on the Verge Of" was inspired by a picture of a 2004 holiday evergreen ablaze on the Seattle Fire Parties page, and took elements from the Art Academy's presentation on drawing the female skull, the sidebar illustration found on Aspine.com's "Tri-Fix" spine screw anchoring system, and the Guyot Brothers' page on filigree metal findings. Though--barring the findings, and the skull, I doubt you could definitively pick out any other elements. As always, click for the full work. Painted in Gimp, Aprille 2010, with various aging/burning effects added.)
