But I wanted at least one more piece that had both features in it. I saw an illustration on Pinterest of a swimmer diving into a body of water and it inspired the location and style. But instead of a swimmer going into the water, I thought I'd make a mermaid coming out of the water, her hair blowing in the wind.

I planned to do another mermaid, but then it occurred to me that it might be even cuter to give the mermaid a love interest. So I changed the second mermaid into a sailor. (Plus, I really love drawing little tattoos on sailor's arms.) Ideally, if someone buys the mermaid, they will also buy the sailor.

Ideally, if someone buys the mermaid, they will also buy the sailor. But they are their own separate pieces and can be sold as such.

Okay, now I think I have enough Wind and Water pieces for the show. This is a WeHa Artists Emporium group show hosted by a lovely restaurant in Hartford BIN228. I'll let you know when it's up and running.
Hope you're all having a good week.
Thanks for stopping in!
