☆ Mystical Magical Makings - Mermaids

I can't believe how long it's been between posts. I have been totally wrapped up in my art, every lunch time when the girls sleep, evenings once they've gone to bed. And I have been totally loving it, I have been really excited every step of the way, I think she is the best of me, and she has taught me a lot.

Bean calls her 'Mama's pretty mermaid painting, her pretty blue arial' (spoken of course with that adorable toddler voice!)

This week we were focusing on change, growth and transformation and incorporating element used by the artist Chagall. Unlike the angel and goddess weeks however, I decided not to embrace the movement associated with this week, I had intended to, but in the end I thought she was meant to be just the way she is...

...So here she is. my pretty blue mermaid.

Not a great photo I know, but I will update this when I can get her into natural light tomorrow.
The butterfly - a classic symbol of transformation



  1. She is really lovely, so beautiful and mesmerising as all good mermaids should be - I especially love her jewels and how you have draped them about her body. sequins=genius!
    I'm loving the course too!
