Sweet Sisters

- by Emily J White

This week's theme: Mermaids

"A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Africa and Asia." - Wikipedia. That sounds pretty thorough, but it fails to mention just how compelling we find mermaids. For an uncountable number of years mermaids have captured our imaginations. We are endlessly fascinated by the half human, half fish that lives in the depths of the ocean.


Art: Sweet Sisters by Artist Emily J White
Two mermaid sisters enjoy a day of clear waters. This is an original mixed media illustration- I have painted the background in acrylics, and the two mermaids and surrounding ocean floor are illustrated in archival inks. This piece is initialed on the front; full signature, title, and date are on the back. Watermark does not appear on the original art.
