New Mermaid Painting

It is so hard to live on an Island, and not paint the ocean. I've loved mermaids since I was 3 or 4. I had a 1960's copy of "The Little Mermaid" complete with some sort of hologram image on the cover that I was mesmerized by. And growing up, my mom would always take me to Weeki Wachee to watch the mermaids. So, mermaid's are a constant in my work. Now that I've left the hustle and bustle of Atlanta behind, and live where I look at the ocean every morning....they are always showing up in my art. This one is simply titled, Love. My soon to be 7 year old, is growing up so fast. She's doing more on her own, and it's so scary as a mom. You want to help her reach her dreams, but oh how scared you are inside. That's what this painting is about. Letting go, Trusting and Loving. It's up on eBay with another crazy starting bid of 99cents. So, if you love it...please bid. And in the meantime...I'm going to go paint some more. Love to all. More about the painting below in the video.

  1. Wyanne, your two new paintings are fabulous!! I can't tell are they acrylic or watercolor? So pretty, I love your style.

  2. I love this! you know I'm a sucker for mermaids! :-)

  3. The Mermaid painting is mostly watercolor. But, lately I've been combining the two mediums of watercolor and acrylic. I'm really liking how things are developing with the two, combined with collage.


I ♥ to hear from you! Thank you so much!!!
