    This is marvellous …. I like the cute tail peeping out from under the dress of the lady on the right … very whimiscal. You are really prolific and must have bundles of energy to paint on such a large and elaborate scale … well done Catherine!

  • Thanks so much dave…so glad you like it..
    I’m excited about it..and strange..but It’s an old painting that I revamped..
    I had given a painting to my sister years ago ..but she wasn’t keen on I repainted it all.. adding things in fact adding nearly everything you see here.. and then turning the women into mermaids..I’m so pleased that it worked out this well.

    much appreciated..

    oooo this is fantastic Catherine (i have just finished a CHUNKIE Mermaid) so i hope you don’t think i’m copying you when loading….we must have had similar inspiration lately……this is my fave of all your work !

  • Thanks so much Karin ..and I’m so glad that you like this
    and No ..I would never think that are a master at what you do lady and I love your work…and strangely enough betty had suggested that I do mermaids.. but yesterday after viewing your chunkies I was going to ask you to try some mermaids kidding !!..I was about to say that in your style they would be fantastic!!..hows that for synchronicity..

    so I’ll be over to visit your gallery and peek at your new work

    much appreciated!

    this beautiful catherine. this only took you a few days? my work ethic is rubbish!

  • Hi Dan ..good to see you ..and thanks so much -I’m glad you like it..
    My work ethic is not too good either dan..but because I was sort of given a theme or a suggestion to try these mermaids..I think It got me moving again ..I was stuck and bored and not painting much .along came betty and said try some I did..
    so don’t worry ..there can be such long lulls in my painting around here..
    but once I’m into something that I feel is going to work out well..then I’ll work at it day and night a mad woman…hha!!

    so don’t whip yourself..I am the same as you ..hha!!
    thanks again

    and I’m so glad that you like this one..I think it’s a beauty too.

    Now I can see the whole thing, it’s even more astonishing Catherine…

  • Thanks so much know you are spot on astonished me too..hhha!!

    no kidding ..when I felt that it was finished I stood back and said wow now that’s a very full canvas..and quite strange too I was a bit shocked at the impact …so I’m glad that you were astonished too..much appreciated janis..and if you like it too then that means a lot to me.

    wonderful Catherine…so much to look at and the detail is amazing. the mermaids are a lovely idea. The colours and style are fabulous. You should sell this with no trouble at your cafe spot if not here! well done.

  • aww!! Linda ..that’s so kind..and I’m glad that you like it..
    it would be great to make another sale..I’m all out of that money thing ..hha!!

    and I’m glad that you like the way that I’ve painted it’s a full canvas for sure..I probably could have done the black lines a bit finer ..but It sort of called out for – Bold..

    much appreciated Linda
