1. I've always thought it would be fun to illustrate a children's book. This etching from Catia Chien looks like it belongs in a story book. Entitled "J", it's a limited edition of 10 prints. $30.
2. Trish Grantham is a Portland artist that painted an amazing mural in my shop a couple of years ago. I love her recent paintings of cute creatures on old dictionary pages. The Owl and the Elephant ($58), shown below, is painted on a page from the "M" section, which includes words like merit, merlin, mermaid, and merriment. So charming!
3. I do love polaroids, especially this original, Horizon Variations ($40), by Eduardo Martinez.
