The Dalmation Jasper Unicorn is a little Pegasus-y. While the stone isn’t associated with Pegasus in any way, Pegasus is associated with the Kentucky Derby. Anyone who has lived in Kentucky has surely collected a Pegasus pin or two – heck -maybe even got the special winning pin and got a prize! So, to honor my Kentucky roots, I added some wings to this Crystal Unicorn and set the video to bluegrass. Is it a nod to Kentucky that anyone would recognize without my wordy explanation? Probably not. But that’s ok.
All Crystal Unicorn paintings are 9×12″, painted to last with lightfast watercolor, gouache, and ink on archival paper. Paints and mediums used in collection include Kuretake Gansai Tambi, Daniel Smith, Winsor and Newton, and Prima. The linework is brushed on with Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bombay India Ink. The paper used is 140-lb Arches Hot Press watercolor paper. They are packaged in a bag-and-board situation (think how comic books are stored), and shipped in a cardboard envelope for added protection. All Crystal Unicorns come with a certificate of authenticity.
