Artwork Description

This painting has a tragic if somehow funny story behind it. As I was photographing it as it leaned against my car, a big gust of wind blew it away. Seriously! I have no idea to this day where it is and this photo I took is the only record of it I have! So if you're a munchkin in Oz and you find this merman painting in a cornfield somewhere, contact Raine Szramski c/o

I love the dolphin. The merman is very nice. The colors work very well together. I like the tail of the merman. Good job all around.

Thank you! I'm so glad everyone likes how the water turned out because I'd never done an underwater picture before(at this point) and I was experimenting.

Wow, Raine! Love the fluid movement on this piece and the the way the light reflects off the bodies. Beautiful!

love the effect of water, and his multi-hued tail.

Art at its best.
