Those Sirens and their singing...


Well folks, after the last post (oh that sounds a little sad!)...
I have taken Quentin's advice and hidden my junk under the table!
By the way, Quentin makes the most gorgeous jewellery if you want to have a peek at his website Lunar Skies
Which means that I got to do some painting, doubt it will last though ;o)
I have (I think) finished (maybe) this Mermaid painting which has been lying around for a while bugging me to get on with it...you know those Sirens and their song!
Does it look finished to you, or is something missing?
My dear Troll says it need an island, but I think that might be too distracting, after all it's her we're meant to be looking at, not an island in the hope that Jack Sparrow might be lurking there ;o)
As you can see, I'm a fiddler, which is a big problem!
Nothing ever gets finished 'cos I just need to add a little something here and a bit there...
The colours aren't really like this either because my scanner and the finished item always have a tiff and play up with each other so my colours go all weird!?!
Oh well, back to my fiddling...and as Joolz has put the thought there (thanks for that Ju!)...I now have 'Fiddler on the Roof' going through my head!
'If I were a rich man....'
Bet you're all singing it now too aren't you?
He he he...

Your mermaid is quite lovely and looks finished to me. I know you said the colors aren't true to the actual painting but they're soft and watery and look perfect.

Hey you, yeah you hiding in the Woods there. Fiddling is what we do. Arting is how we fiddle. Your arting is always wonderful. And this Siren is commanding and calm and so confident of her powers. Her surroundings are softly beckoning us to listen to the splish splash of the waves and wait for Her song....
What else could she need?

Well my lovely, your beautiful mermaid looks complete to me...a fiddler heh?? I am married to cone of these, mine is a musician who creates a song, records it then scrubs it out and starts again, adds all the bells and whistles to it, listens to it for a while and then strips it back, adds a few different lines and then it is complete......or is it???
I usually have to step in and say "That's enough, it's completed, STOP NOW".
So now I'm going to say that to you - pertaining to this lovely picture - you can STOP NOW....LOL!!
Brightest Blessings to you m'lady :o))
