    Every salty sailor’s fantasy is to see if not find a mermaid, catch her for the pleasure or profit. Someone apparently has succeeded but let’s hope this is just a dream state not for reality, swaying as she is too and fro in her cramped glass cage. Scales and bubble come out superb but you’ve really did a great job with the light-on-glass effect, varying the tone to coincide with the angle and curivitarue of the bottle and beams.

  • Thank you Steve for your interesting and constructive comment on my little mermaid. It all came out of my subconscious mind. I suffer from claustrophobia and this is what came out!!! LOL!!

    This is beautiful Rusty-I can imagine what being trapped would feel like I am also claustrophobic-however your illustration with it’s wonderful bright colors makes this a pleasant and artistic setting.
