There are some amazing art works on etsy.com (a place to buy and sell handmade and vintage things). I'm going to start showing you some of them.
This is a photographer that very cleverly uses parts of photographs to spell out your name (or other words). You can see more at etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6704991
This is a collage and acrylic painting with gold metal leaf. It's by a woman who lives in the San Francisco Bay area and has been painting for 50 years. (She must be about my age.) You can see more of her work at http://www.etsy.com./shop.php?user_id=7105362
This is a girl in Mexico who does a lot of beautiful bird paintings often with collage additions.
