Someone has purchased my mermaid painting.
It was a little sad to see her go, but the lady that bought it, really likes it, and so I feel it’ll be OK; “the rotund mermaid” will be elsewhere but she’ll be loved….
Media: oil paints on wood
Dimensions: 27″ X 24″
This is how I always imagined mermaids: rotund.
I painted mermaids before, but always featuring their common slim figure. This time I decided to go for it. I wanted to depict her in tranquil and serene waters.
Rich blues and greens deepen and fade all throughout the painting making it a peaceful and pleasant picture to view.
I will miss the mermaid. valerie
