Mermaid Grotto by SeaOfFireflies Mermaid Grotto by SeaOfFireflies
Due to many of my friends calling this a Little Mermaid piece, I decided to be snarky and name it Mermaid Grotto!
Typography - however useful of a class it is - gets very monotonous. I really painted this for my sanity. I was also inspired on a field-trip with my anthropology class to Philadelphia's Magic Gardens. Beautiful, beautiful place!

Mermaids are the coolest mythical creatures ever. I have a new painting of The Little Mermaid that you might like too!

Hi Michelle, this is so wonderful, I really like how you worked with light. Also I write to get your release for your piece, I want to publish it in Mermaid, my Pinterest board.

In this space I share my passion for Mermaid art, in all its manifestations, since the traditional, photography to digital. As you can see, I always recognize the author and if it's possible, I include the used technique and year.
Here's the link es.pinterest.com/mermaidandang…

Hi again Michelle, I hope you're fine. It's ready, I've pinned it a few minutes ago, I added a link back to your site as you told me. It's there any problem if I include it on a Facebook page in which I'm working on, called Mermaids: Beyond Whispers and Dreams, it's about mermaid art, like in Pinterest.

As long as there's a link to my website, that's fine. I also have a facebook page that I would appreciate you linking too as well, since it will be on the same site. I'm so happy you enjoy my work! Please let me know the URL when you've posted it. :happybounce:

Btw, I have a newer mermaid piece, if you're up to seeing it!

Hi Michelle, I added your Facebook page in my pin dedicated for your work.
I haven't finished my Facebook page because I'm still looking for a cover photo, it's the same for the description. I wish to find the words that more define my passion for this kind of art and that can invite to others to visit it. Maybe I'm so perfectionist! I will let you know when it'll be ready.
Are you against if I use this piece as a cover for a Facebook page specially dedicated to Ariel?
P.D. I pinned your newer mermaid piece, of course with your requests (I liked so much!).

This is just beautiful! I am quite jealous that you are taking anthropology. I was thinking of going into it, but...

Thanks! It's a very fun class. There are lots of concepts to wrap your head around, but in the end it really gives you a new perspective on the world.

Any word on the figure looking down?

In all honesty, the figure was more of an afterthought for this piece. I felt that a character placed up there would help enhance the sense of depth, and bring more of a narrative to the scene. But thanks for asking! :)

Sometimes "I just felt like it" is the perfect answer isn't it?

It is! If you really feel like doing something, it turns out so much better.
