Mutant Mermaid

Here's my latest and greatest!



"It Ain't Easy Bein' Green, Ariel" - 18" x 24" acrylic original on canvas


It hadn't really been my intention to turn Ariel into an alien. I was thinking more of oceanic and water type colors when I picked the green and blue. But, now that I see the overall effect, I like it! I think it suits her :-)

I'm working on an Aladdin and Jasmine painting next. It's taking me a little longer because I'm finding it hard to motivate myself when there are Yahoo! News articles about North Korea to obsess over. Only 2 more days til the Turtle comes home from Seoul and I swear, I'm going to clock my fastest pace ever when I sprint into his arms at the airport! 

Due to the Korea stress, I had a fantastic run yesterday. I ran almost 6.75 miles straight before stopping for a water break....Now, I just need to time his travels to crazy countries with races!

  1. I like the use of colors in this one. It is not what I would expect, which is exciting!

  4. I think the Little Mermaid was our second most popular Halloween costume when the girls were little. Second only to Tinkerbell. I'm sure I still have some Mermaid stuff laying around here. Sad they've outgrown their love of Disney. Sigh.
