Lily Pond Mermaid With Goldfish Snack
Painting - Gouache On Paper
A freshwater mermaid sits in a lily pond, enjoying a light snack. As her long green hair floats up towards the surface, it turns into water-weed and water-lilies, providing a tangle of camouflage through which goldfish swim placidly. The mermaid eyes one such goldfish with a slight smile. With her other hand she is dropping fishbones onto a submerged lily pad that serves her as a table. Moreover, she has a built-in bra formed by the water-lilies growing on long stems out of her head and curving up under her armpit, so the perennial problem of embarrassing mermaidish nudity will have been solved to the satisfaction of all concerned. Yes, everyone (apart from ardent goldfish lovers) should be happy with this painting. And I am talking particularly to the person or people who have more than once visited my own website with a search for the keywords 'mermaid in lily pond'. This one is for you! 'How nice a print of this picture would look on your bathroom wall!' I feel impelled to say.
