Mermaids from the 'Boutique Beauties Show'!

I've always loved mermaids. I love the water. I love swimming, surfing, scuba diving, waterslides... snowboarding(that's a water thing too... but just frozen water)... whatever. I used to pretend i was a mermaid in swimming pools as a child. I loved the movie "Splash". Even as i got a bit older, i loved "The Little Mermaid" and have read the original story many times as youth. I loved mermaids more than Faeries, even! So why had i never painted one before and have painted so many faeries?? Well, that all changed in May of this year! 4 new MERMAID paintings were born for the "Boutique Beauties Show" at Forsya Boutique, shown from mid June to end of July.

Here they are in all their glory...
my Under Water Pinups!

*just as a side note: i had prepped and painted these 4 canvases a LONG time ago, and they've been siting there for what felt like FOREVER, not knowing what i'd paint on them. Until one day i used my spray painting technique to complete the edges. Finally, i felt they were ready to be painted on and underwater images first came to mind... it just felt fitting to add mermaids to the center of the canvas, going nicely with the "beauties" theme i had for the show.
i think i chose wisely.
