Its first line reads,' I am a creature of the fey, prepare to give your soul away,' wonderfully spooky!
Up to now I have only painted friendly mermaids, perhaps It is time to give my next one a bit of menace.
As I mentioned in my earlier post on Sunday I have been looking for inspiration from the mermaids of Teesha Moore
I was asked to incorporate two mermaids and a cat! So my mermaids are diving down to look at the cat who is protected by a bubble of air. I didn't want him to be harmed!! ( I am a huge friend of furry felines) It was strange, and frankly rather disturbing to put a cat at the bottom of the sea and at first I wasn't at all sure, but the lady I made it for seemed very happy. In the end I rather liked the cat in the bubble!
This is a little WIP shot, sorry for fuzzy photo, I didn't seem to take any good photographs of my two mermaids!
And finally my little Summer mermaid
It has a very textured surface with embroidery and pearls,beads and shells around the collage.
The shells were fixed and set in Polyfilla, which is a product normally used to fill holes in walls. It seemed to work fine and I varnished it. It seems to have stood up to a year in my bathroom so I guess the plaster is watertight!
