..... OR Mermaids & Sailors .... They go well together, no matter in which order I place them. These are two of my favorite subjects that I pursue in Art, Literature, Film, Music, Antiques & Collectibles and the Decorative Arts. I will be sharing things here from my collections and other items from the internet that I find appealing to me.
..... I also enjoy all things related to the "Seven Seas", which, of course is the domain of both, Mermaids and Sailors. This may include oceans, islands, ports & harbors, beaches, sea creatures, and classic sailing ships, to name a few.
..... So, relax and enjoy the sometimes wild, but always wet, world of Mermaids & Sailors !!

Portrait of the Muse: Painting Is Such A Sweet Psychosis.
My first new painting in a month or more. It is only a 12inch by 16 inch canvas panel, but there are a lot of brushstrokes in it. As with most of my paintings, it began as random blotches of paint, and was built up, stroke by stroke, painting things in and painting things out, until it took the shape you see. I enjoyed the process, and I am as surprised as anyone to see its final form. If you have anything to say about it, please feel free to put it in my Ask.
