In regard to calendar art, you can actually get them free from some shops. A few years ago I went to one of
those shops, which is seasonal and closes in a week or so, and asked what they did with all those left over
calendars. Well, they tear off the back page and send it back and then trash the rest. The last day the
shop was to be open, I went in and started taking the backs off the calendars and they let me take about 200
calendars home, just for doing the work. Of course, I told them I was an elementary art teacher, etc. So
now I have a wonderful file of not only art prints but also animal pictures, great landscape scenes, etc. A
huge picture reference file. so whenever anyone says "I can't think of how this should look" they go to the
file and find something similar to look at. It was a LOT of work but worth it. I spent about 3 hours that
night.
