Mermaid and the moon

When I started to think about creating the Blue Mermaid series, I could see the images in my mind. I knew that I wanted the waiting mermaid painting to be packed full of blues and silvers, giving every painting an eerie feel. This particular painting is the first in the series. It features a mermaid simply waiting for someone to come, her hair blowing in the warm tropical breeze. A large painting, it comes not only with the detail of the open ocean beneath you, but also the moon shining high in the sky above. I also love the contrast of the warm glowing lights that surround here, as well as the glistening scales of her tail.
