What the Mermaid Wore

What the Mermaid Wore

The idea for this painting was sparked at my favourite beach.  Which is how this painting got it’s title. I was sitting on the beach, watching my kiddies splash around, minding my own business, when all of a sudden there was a girl, in this green, and gold and orange dress posing for pictures on the beach. I thought at first that she was the most daring bride I would ever see and then I realized that she was likely celebrating her Quinceañera.

I took the idea of the lake and the gown and the girl and ran with it. I have to say this is one of my favourites from this series. Maybe I’ll do it on a large canvas – what do you think?
