Painting my best friend Sandy, as a mermaid was so much fun! I was thrilled when her daughter, Michelle commissioned a painting of her mom as a mermaid.....those of you who know me, know how I feel about mermaids! Well, to paint my bff as a mermaid? It doesn't get better than that! Quickly I started looking at all the photos of Sandy to find just the right one! Bingo! This photograph was taken at a little Wine Cafe in Hope Mills that we enjoy visiting from time to time.
I placed Sandy in the water like she was casually reading a book and soaking up some waves, look closely at the title of the book. Sandy has a way of telling or describing information prefaced with "this is the deal", so of course, I titled the painting "The Deal".
Happy Birthday to my bff Sandy, from your daughter, Michelle.......we both love you!
