The original will be featured in Taipei this April (2014) at an international juried art show – Art Revolution Taipei. This piece features 3 traveling balloons only they travel beneath the water. One of them has aired to the surface….oh look at that, a sunset!  If anyone remembers Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks movie, you will recall the underwater song.  As I painted this it came to mind, and then wouldn’t leave my head.  The rhythm and tune itself just lend itself to to this painting, so I titled it after the song “The Beautiful Briny Sea.  I’ll post the video below as I’m sure some of you young’ns have not had the privilege 🙂

“Shy Little Siren”

Now Available:  “Shy Little Siren” 16′ x 20″ x 3/4″ acrylic on stretched canvas original painting. For some reason, I don’t seem to paint “green” paintings that often.  Well, this one is filled with the green underwater wavy grass and as you can see, a shy mermaid.  This piece has a lot of movement and flow.  The stalks of grass, the rising bubbles, and the mermaid hair all lend themselves to motion.  This piece could almost fit into my girls series titled “Beauty of Imagination” as she is a girl with her face hidden (a lot of her is hidden).  But I’m keeping her categorized in my Seafarers series as it’s a water piece with a lot of mystery.  To see more info and detailed pics, she is currently available in my etsy shop here. 1blogsiren
