The Mermaid and the Bubble

I have always loved mermaids.  When I saw this gorgeous illustration, I added it to my collection of "cyber" art.

I like the idea of wing-like fins on her shoulders--and the delicate ting of yellow and pink are beautiful.  The way this talented artist painted the mermaid's hair is phenomenal--I am fascinated by the way it is highlighted, almost as though it glows.

I also LOVE the bubble--I really like bubbles.  (grin)

Oh, she is so very sweet and peaceful looking... I love her shiny tail, sparkling wings, and the innocence she seems to portray. Perhaps her bubble is foretelling of futures ... what a find, Beth! :)

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Very nice, mermaids have always fascinated people. Have you gotten some rain yet, it has now stopped here and sun is trying to shine. Almost lunch time, have to think of something to fix, probably turkey breast sandwich for Abe and me and left over noddles for the Granddaughter.

So pretty! I haven't seen wings/fins like that before. It makes her look a little like a fairy, a fairy mermaid. :)
