Sea Sand


Mermaid Legend


O mermaid what's it


like to swim


B'neath surface of the sea ?


With dolphins for companions


Alluring, fresh, and free .


A fish from an older book started this creative ideas for this mermaid themed art doll. Then I added a butterfly to her head to give a whimsical feeling. I wanted her to have a unique patterned tail of her own and a funky sea shell belt. This mermaid art paper doll was fun to create using Character Constructions with my other paper doll parts. Under those butterfly wings is Catherine Moore's Marie Antoinette hiding from the Queen of Tarts.

Wishing you a wonderful day...

Your sea doll really strikes a note with me. I love the ocean and she is so perfectly balanced and wonderful. It is refreshing to see a straight fish tail instead of the usual ones that are swirly. It's amazing how we, as artists, gain inspiration in places and at times when we least expect it. I really like the poem you wrote? or chose to go with it too.
