Killin’ Time (Part 4)

It was only in the last year or so that I really got into mermaids.  I have always loved the ocean, and for years I collected dolphin figurines and sculptures.  That was my passion for the longest time, until I realized I had collected just about every dolphin trinket made in China and my curio cabinet was smack full of dust catchers.

In the last few years I have become great friends with a gal named Lindsey.  We met through the jewelry business I used to own, and we have remained friends since.  We both love the beach and water so much that we call each other “Salty Sis(ter).”  She loves mermaids and I kind of picked up on that, I suppose.

Anyway, here is a painting I just did of another mermaid.

A friend requested a mermaid painting for one of the bedrooms in one of her beach houses.  I drew this one freehand and it’s an original design.   Her earrings are three-dimensional pearls, and the scales on her tail are painted with several colors of iridescent paint for a shimmery effect.
