Artwork Description

As usual, I don't like to do the tradional mythical creature. This merman has a seahorse bottom as opposed to the usual fish bottom. Of course then, the title is misleading. I used to give all of my paintings long winded Latin names. Fish Guy's orginal name was Aequor Centaurus or Sea Centaur. People would often get confused whenever I would mention the Latin name, so I would then say...You know...the fish guy. The name stuck.

I don't think that the title is misleading at all.
"La mer" means "the sea" in French, so mermaids and mermen should live in the sea water, according to their name anyways.
Lovely interpretation.

This a wonderful picture. The colors, light, background and the subject are very pleasing to me. I love the idea of a seahorse tail and the human part is very hansdsome!

Art at its best.
