-There are several pieces that were created by Faith, painstakingly described here by order of creation for the benefit of the imaginatively challenged:+There are several pieces that were created by Faith, painstakingly described here by order of creation for the benefit of the imaginatively challenged. Unless specifically stated otherwise, these Trumps are in Faith'​s cylinder of art supplies:
   ***Equanimity**:​ [[Fiona]] by the water - oil on a widescreen canvas. Most of the frame is taken by storming currents of green and blue, decorated with white froth. Some of it is sky, some of it sea, but it's completely seamless, and gives an almost cubist feel of changing perspective. The rightmost third of the frame is a close-up on Fiona, in 3/4 view, gazing into something just beyond the bottom-left corner. Her hair looks like flames of copper, backdropped by all this green, and its curls follow the movement of the currents (or vice versa), but she herself is as serene as everything else is turbulent, an island of safety; her eyes are the only place in the picture where the viewer'​s eyes can possibly rest.   ***Equanimity**:​ [[Fiona]] by the water - oil on a widescreen canvas.

   ***Brave New World**: Charlottesville main road Landscape - oil on canvas. a classic perspective into a boulevard, framed by autumn leaves on autumn branches, sidewalk on both sides and a nice cafe. Yes, the point of entry is a rather conspicuous one. It's a good thing we don't have masquerade.   ***Brave New World**: Charlottesville main road Landscape - oil on canvas. a classic perspective into a boulevard, framed by autumn leaves on autumn branches, sidewalk on both sides and a nice cafe.

   ***Subterfuge**:​ Lord Magni'​s great hall - acrylics on canvas. Another childish POV, from behind one of the two great sculptures on both sides of the fireplace. The great fire is visible on the left edge of the frame. Next to it stands the statue of Jarnsaxa which reaches all the way to the top of the frame, where it is cut at the neck. The right half of the frame is mostly the carved decorations on the back of the statue of Donraz, behind which the viewer is placed, and between the two statues lies the hall itself with its great table.   ***Subterfuge**:​ Lord Magni'​s great hall - acrylics on canvas.

   ***Treachery**:​ classic portrait of Duke Weiland - oil on canvas. Duke Weiland from boots to feathers, powerful stance, perfect smile, perfect skin. A bit too perfect. The painting uses something akin to the [[wp>​Uncanny Valley]] effect to make the Duke seem very untrustworthy for no obvious reason. Clearly the Prince has picked up a thing or two on Earth.   ***Treachery**:​ classic portrait of Duke Weiland - oil on canvas.

 +  ***The Fool**: like [[http://​www.sacred-texts.com/​tarot/​tcc/​img/​ugar00.jpg|of the Tarot]], but Charles - inc on card
 +  ***Moondance**:​ The entrance to Tir-na Nogth'​s dungeons - Black inc on Black card. Taken from Corwin'​s memory, using his focus on secondary senses (gained by long months of blindness) and his being a nostalgic poofter; looks more like a woodcut than an inc-job, all slices of black and white in a sort of a harlequin pattern.
 +  ***Lunacy**:​ Brand, with the moonlight playing hard enough to make him look like Charles - inc on Black card. Transparent layers of pale color that merge - in an attempt to paint Charles while guarding the Tir Pattern - into a surprising Brand.
 +    *In Faith'​s pocket
 +  ***Alfodr**:​ Charles from below, behind a grassy knoll - inc on card. The first impression is that the knoll is a hillside, and the Blue of Charles is the sky, with his head outlined by the brilliance of the sun from behind
 +    *Given to Charles and left by him in a box for Merlin
 +  *Charlottesville - came out as a map with a red circle
 +  *Latveria - came out as...?

   ***Kraken**:​ Alice specializes in wall paintings, street art, etc. This is a painting of a monstrous octopus which she painted as a commission for [[Jules]] on the floor of the pool at his house. Done in spray paints for a lush, hyper-real effect, the creature rises from the sea floor, where mens' bones are encrusted in the colorful coral reefs.   ***Kraken**:​ Alice specializes in wall paintings, street art, etc. This is a painting of a monstrous octopus which she painted as a commission for [[Jules]] on the floor of the pool at his house.
