I am excited (and nervous) to present 'Elusive', a huge 4x5 ' commissioned painting of a merman that I've been working on for a while. I love to work with lots of texture and colour. I truly hope that the person who commissioned this work enjoys looking at it as much as I've enjoyed painting it!

Wow this is GORGEOUS!!! I've done mermaids before but never a merman. I love the scales, the texture is great and that orange really makes it pop!! I'm sure your client will love it!!! This is a great piece!! :0)

Nicola - thank you SO MUCH!!! I appreciate those words a lot!

I sent the buyer a link to this blog and he loves it! What a relief! I was so worried that he wouldn't like it! And after spending so much time on it, that would have been hard!

I've never done a merman before, either. As a matter of fact, I've never really done anything remotely masculine, and this is by far the biggest piece I've done, so it was a wonderful challenge and lesson for me!! Yay!!!
