This is artwork from the Mythic Creatures calendar. I designed these painting so that they could be removed at the end of the year and put into a standard 11 x 14 inch frame.

I'll tell you a secret. When I started this piece, I didn't realize the paper had been changed by the manufacturer. As a result, I couldn't get the yellow dye color on the belly to go down smoothly (This is one of the many surprises that await you with mixed media).

I was pretty far into the piece at that point, and I really didn't want to start over. So I thought, spots would be a really cool addition. It was worth the extra time it took to put them all in perspective and I can't imagine her without them now.

It is a mixed media piece, created using concentrated watercolor dyes and colored pencils. You need to know that dye colors are fugitive which means they will fade over time. Keep them out of direct sunlight. This is good advice for all artwork. That being said, I have not personally noticed any loss of vibrancy.

To address the fading issue, frame with only archival materials and Conservation Glass which filters out 97% of UV light and it works very well.

If for any reason the art is removed from the frame, take note of the orientation of the glass, as it has a right and wrong side.
