The Sea Maiden


This is my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge (Mermaids). The background is from Dover's (Ornamental Forms in Nature series) overlayed with a vintage woodblock image of a mermaid. The shell, seahorse and logo were painted and added digitally. Gradient filters were added in Photoshop.

  7. Lori, the colors in this are awesome!

    BTW, please disregard the comment about giving your daughter a copy of the Princess Raven. It was someone else who mentioned this, not you. I guess I just got mixed up because of the name of your blog! (unless you want your daughter to have a copy).
