Art: Mermaid of the Deep by Artist Jasmine Ann Becket-Griffith
Mermaid of the Deep - my husband thinks this one is "scary", hehe. Now, I've painted a LOT of mermaids over these past 10 years or so, but this is my FAVOURITE to date! I love oceans, and ocean life - especially those weird, bizarre, creepy creatures that live in the sunless depths of the benthic and abyssal zones of the ocean. The angler fish, lantern fish, dragonfish/devilfish, the jellyfish, the pelican gulper eel, the glass squid - all of these creatures in my painting are actually based on REAL animals, that are out in our oceans right now. I love them all, so I've painted them with a kinda creepy mermaid - with bioluminescent abyssal colouring, just like the other monsters of the deep. 16"x20" acrylic painting on canvas.
