In this fast pace world, we sometimes forget about the ingenious inventions of yesteryear. The old-timers say you haven′t lived if you have never heard the rumbling thunder from an old steam engine. To actually ride in one through the treacherous mountains was an adventure to last a lifetime. The iron monster would chug and groan as it attempted to conquer the winding trails through hills and valleys. Then suddenly, it was as if the mountains would open up and there it was, the man-made trestle that seemed to stretch for miles. The faint of heart would just close their eyes, whilst the more daring simply held their breath as the wooden structure creaked beneath the tons of iron, while "Crossing Snowy Canyon."
Artists and art publishing companies sometimes add small images to a print. This added pictorial comment is called a remark and is traditionally spelled in French as "remarque". Remarques can add exceptional value to an art-print. Some prints have been known to increase in values hundreds and even thousands of dollars more than the same print without. When purchased with Suchiu Art pieces these images are always in full color and are totally hand painted by Ronald Suchiu and it is common for them to include a personalized note, phrase or even a hidden message. Because of the small size and his attention to detail Ron restricts his remarque production to less than 200 units per year. Most remarques are rarely as complex as Suchiu's and are generally very quickly drawn tiny pencil sketches without color. When purchasing an art print with a remarque buyers should "BEWARE!" that some prints and art pieces have what appears to be a remarque on them. The image may be printed on at the time that the print was made. These offer no added collectible value. Remarque is a small original sketch, drawing or painting done by the artist in the margin of the finished print.
