Spectrum may be an issue in the future.  I've been finding myself hunting for "good light" to read fine, low contrast print. 

I'm slowly replacing all the incandescent lights in my house that I frequently use with either CF, or LED.  I don't like the slow start, and limited lifespan, and fragility of the CF lights, so I probably will go with all LED in the future, at least if I can find ones that I can afford.

Perhaps a narrow spectrum lightbulb will also be safer on the artwork.  Especially by filtering out all UV.
