This is my take on the old classic Andersen tale. The Little Mermaid basking in the sun, on the land above the ocean's surface...She is captured in coral, blue and green, with golden hair blowing in the sea breeze. This painting is made on 12x16 in (30.48x40.64cm) canvas with acrylic paint and sprayed with a varnish to protect it. It has been mounted on hand cut foam core and placed in a recycled barn wood frame that has been painted blue, showing off the character and imperfect rustic quality of the wood. A paper backing, saw tooth hanger and wire hanger (added to hang in a gallery) have been applied as well. All artwork is initialed and dated. Item comes wrapped in brown paper and tied with twine.
