Art for all tastes and budgets at Racine's Starving Artist Fair

There was something for everyone at Sunday's 41st annual Racine Starving Artist Fair, with some 120 artists showing off a variety of work in every medium you could think of.

Every art budget could be satisfied as well. We found art from $2 on up to (and beyond) the fair's listed top price of $250. (Hey, they're artists, not accountants!)

The wife, as usual, gravitated to the top end... she really, really liked that dragon.
