Crystal Cove is a drawing of a mermaid on a black sand beach at sunset. The coastline is rugged. A rock arch appears in the distance. Clouds in the sky are painted pink in the waning light.
Large green crystals appear near the base of the arch. Some point straight up while others are at odd angles. One has partially fallen into the sea. Two of the bigger crystals appear to have windows near the top. Farther away, some of the crystals have taken to the sky.
The original drawing is done in Prismacolor colored pencils on 2-ply Bristol vellum.
Each Crystal Cove print is hand signed and hand numbered out of a run of 50. Once they are sold out, no more will be run.
The print comes mounted in a 16″ x 20″ archival mat with backing board. All of my prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.
I cut my own mats. The mat colors may vary depending on what I have in stock but I always pick something that compliments the artwork. If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send me a note and I will try to accommodate you. For Crystal Cove I usually use a double mat, usually in shades of dark green, brown and/or gray. Sometimes I use the same color for both the inner and outer mats. This creates a different but equally appealing look. The print itself is about 11″ x 14″, which leaves an approximate 2.5″ border on the sides and 3″ on the top and bottom.
Prints are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches. I recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
