When you don’t paint every single bit of your art it becomes Mixed Media. You can see here that I’ve used an existing background. Lots of artists do this, it is perfectly acceptable. I’ve been experimenting because I have a new-found respect for all of you mixed media artists. I created the butterfly woman and put her on top of the mountainous background, adding some flowers. The hard-core part of me says this is cheating, but my mind knows it is not, just a new way of expressing.
