The Descent Mermaid

- by ArtistDia.t

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: The Descent Mermaid by Artist ArtistDia.t
This work started as a water-color I did in high school art class. It was of course lost over time, but I did keep a photo record of the art. So I decided to rework the art and make it more current. The actual mermaid was part of the original. It has been digitally enhanced.

These are 16"x20" professional giclee prints on acid free watercolor paper. Each will be hand enhanced, signed and numbered.

Hallmarks will not print.
