"A Mermaid found a swimming lad, Picked him for her own, Pressed her body to his body, Laughed; and plunging down Forgot in cruel happiness That even lovers drown" W.B Yeats
-A Merrow is a gentle Irish mermaid, who has a fondness for fishermen. The poem quoted is by my favourite poet, Irishman W.B Yeats.
painting was a joy to do -I meditated upon the folklore of Ireland
which is a constant source of inspiration, and slowly this image of the
water-bound seductress and her catch emerged. I like the flow and
subtlety of it - I think it is one of my favourites!
It is painted on Stonehenge watercolour paper, and measures 27cm x 20cm (10 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches)
It is presented with an acid free ivory mat, and is packaged with acid-free foamcore backing and a protective plastic sleeve. All my original artwork is shipped flat and very well protected with a certificate of authenticity.
