So, I got a commission from an old childhood friend of Damon's who wanted a copy of my Lotus Mermaid for her daughter's room, since her daughter totally digs mermaids. (I can relate!)
The original piece that I sold was an embellished & mounted print that I sold a year ago on Etsy. It's always weird with prints, because I want to make my "art" pieces individual, and unique, and there were always things about the original that bugged me (i.e. her hands), so I offered to just make an original painting for her based off the original drawing.
Anyway, this is it! She's not varnished yet (it's so hard to photograph/scan after they're varnished), and I'm considering putting a tiny green swaroski crystal in each of her eye to add some sparkle after the varnish is on. But otherwise, I'm countin' her done.
PS- the original has uncovered boobs, but the embellished got some lotuses covering her ladies, since the piece was originally for GDG's Nickelodeon Show, and they wanted family friendly art...
