A Very Classical Looking Mermaid

With her soft curves and curly fringe this one almost has a Roman look about her. Add in those flower ornaments and it throws a nod into 20's wedding veils. LOL.

I like her expression. She seems very quiet and nice.

You can find her on auction here: http://tinyurl.com/3dxjkp

Another beautiful work, and I love the reference to bridal veils of the 20's. The classicism of this picture is evident, and striking.

The flowers, colors, movement, lines--everything speaks to the feminine and watery nature of this mermaid.

Sigh...

I.

Pssssst. Link!
