The Mermaid and Me Updated

Hello there, I hope this post is finding you well and good. I was able to spend much of my day painting, yesterday. Now, we have a Mermaid far enough along to share the story. I’ve never painted a mermaid before so this is the story of how she came to be.

Day 1: Hi, I’m a mermaid!



I was painting those happy candy colored clouds that I seem to love so much and this beautiful creature swam into my view. Bam! I met my first Mermaid. It was quite a surprise to us both.

Day 2: Learning to swim


The next morning, we were slowly checking each other out and she was telling me this awesome story about this family of rowdy killer whales she knows. It was hilarious what those guys get up too, I especially loved the gossip about the Sharks. I mean who doesn’t like to dish the dirt on Sharks…I mean come on.

Day 3: BFF’s


That tail took all day! She likes it, I can tell. She swam circles around me all day and I was starving by the time I left the studio. Mermaid’s have a lot of energy, I think it’s their diet, personally.

Day 4: Getting all gussied up.





Day 5: The big finish

That’s today…I have some minor details, touch up’s and fixin to do. Otherwise she’s ready to swim along and find her new home. I will post the final pictures with the good camera and perfect lighting. I enjoyed working with her and I highly recommend getting to know her better, she’s a real class act.

TA-DA! Here she is all done and ready to cure. 🙂 I’m pretty happy with her. What do you think?


Thanks for being here today, I so appreciate you. <3 Let me hear from you, I miss our talks. Love always, HA!

**Update: She’s now for sale!  Woot, woot! I will have to give her a finishing coat of UV protective clear coat before she ships, but that only takes a day or two extra. 🙂 Here’s the link!

    Her cheek bones, arms, her tail and the light coming around the edge of the tail are masterful.
