This fairy mermaid definitely has attitude. I love the addition of the mouse. Your painting made me smile which is what I believe art should do. Make us happy!!


Mermaids are so cool and i love the colors you used in this one!

Carola Bartz

I love how sometimes something emerges into a painting that we weren't thinking of. Wonderful colors in this painting.


I like your fairy mermaid. She looks like she is just posing for the camera or in this case the artist. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.


I love mermaids, nice colours too.


So cool! I love how the mouse appears almost out of nowhere and is having tea with her.Pretty Mermaid. Happy PPF! Theresa

Stephanie Corder

Love that "over the shoulder" pose- fabulous! Also love her hair and your color choices. Great job!

An odd tea couple but they seem very content with each other's company. :)


Linda siren, with a beautiful tail, a fun job


Your fairy mermaid seems to be very sophisticated and her little mouse companion is too cute!


Glad your fairy got to share her tea with such a sweet little friend!

I wrote a post about the sea earlier this week too - I was within about 2 miles of it but never got to see it.


This is a fun painting, very whimsical great color and wonderful concept. I am glad you brought out the mouse, just adorable.
