Stunning use of color as is typical of your work, but at the heart of it is an amazingly sensitive portrayal of an enchanting creature. It is obvious why so many of your followers and viewers connect with her. Superb work Jane. LF!

Ditto Byron Varvarigos...could not have praised it any better or more eloquently. L/F

Jane Small replied:

Thank you Stephen!

Wynnewood, PA - United States

Marvelous, beautiful painting, Jane. I guess each of us sees in it what we feel in ourselves. For me she is an offspring of the gods, an immortal goddess herself, but neither sure of what she is, how she came to be, what Life is all about. The answer lies within her, and her classically lovely face reflects the yearning for that forgotten peace and beauty. LF

Jane Small replied:

That is so beautiful Byron.You are a poet as well as an amazing photographer.I'm so delighted to be able to use your words for my description! Thank you!

Toronto, ON - Canada

With all the reno work we are doing at the moment I am really stressed out so I came to your gallery to get some calmness in my soul and much needed meditative here I am...I have already looked at this splendid painting...but never had much time to gather my thoughts and say what I really first of all...I need to say that this glorious mermaid very much reminds me of has to be you sitting on that beautifully coloured rock...she is so at peace and and the look of longing in her eyes and face expression is so evident the whole array of gorgeous colours you used in this magical creation Jane..the sun rays and shadows are spectacular! Pure enchantment dear friend..bravo!

Jane Small replied:

Jolanta,I'm so happy that you find peace and enchantment here.Thank you very much for your beautiful comment.

Oh Jane!!! Woooooooow! This is exquisite! Love the far off sublime gaze, and the lifted scales, such lovely detail! The colors in the sky and water, so beautiful! You color choices are so soothing, and I have to mention that rock! The textures you achieved on her "rock throne" are Amazing! Double wow! Bravo! L/F and FB

Jane Small replied:

Everett, WA - United States

I have really fallen in love with your play with sunlight and shadows and the ever inspiring glow of your paintings Jane. She seems sad with thoughts that take her far from there, yet she fine comfort that the place she's in. Caught between two worlds. Time is of the essence. She must decide tonight whether the beauty and safety she so loves or risk it all on a dream of a bright and shining place. She is at that very special age and where the moon is right that she must decide the path of which she follows. For tonight there will be a lunar eclipse in the setting on the moon. Her right hand runs over the familiar rock that is an old friend of her even in her times of trouble. She ask my friend what do I do now ? Her left hand not knowing whether it would like to feel skin or scales. She already knows her answer. She jest toys in her sadness of that which will be no more. And what is her decision ? Well that's locked within her eyes. Thank you Jane for sharing such beauty with us. Like / Favorite

Jane Small replied:

Dear Ken,As I was painting,I felt my mermaid to be very serene.Now,having read your words,I can also think of her as possessing a sense of nostalgia for what is past and experiencing the difficulty of making the choice that you have so beautifully imagined.You have taken the time to weave such a magical and touching story around my painting.Truly beautiful Ken and so deeply appreciated.Thank you very much indeed.

The title could not have been better chosen Jane,..indeed your new painting emerged in front of my eyes out of nowhere...Once again you have taken me aback,..I would not have dreamed of being face to face to a mermaid,..a wonderful mermaid indeed, only you are capable of bringing to life.. Once again this look and these eyes,.. between dream and reality,..between now and eternity,..delight and melancholy.. Only the wonderfully painted structure of the rock makes me avert my eyes a few seconds from this wonderful creature... Happy New Year Jane..! v/f Almo

Painting - Acrylic And Pastel On Canvas


I would like to quote from the insightful comment left on this mermaid painting by nature photographer Byron Varvarigos.He exhibits here on FAA and specializes in creating works of outstanding floral beauty.He so beautifully described the essence of this work.."she is an offspring of the gods,an immortal goddess herself,but neither sure of what she is,how she came to be,what Life is all about.The answer lies within her,and her classically lovely face reflects the yearning for that forgotten peace and beauty"
