It is in the deeper parts of things that we often find the valuables. Go deep. Marylouise found this to be true when she went exploring in the deepest darkest of caves where once you enter sunlight cuts out and you swim blind. She'd been warned, and pleaded with not to go but Marylouise was not one to pay heed to anyone other than her inner muse. The voice said: "Go deep," and she did and what did she find? A treasure. Something that she could only feel and make out the outlines of. Knowing right away that this is what she was meant to find, she swam quickly to the safety of sunlight. She polished her treasure (a byzantine bra and matching hair ornament) and wears them proudly. The brave are rewarded...
This mermaid was made for my swap partner and is painted on heavy watercolor paper using gold and india inks, watercolor, colored pencils, charcoal pencil, gold paint.
