Artwork Description

I originally painted a study of the ocean shore by sunset. I used reference from several photos I downloaded from stock photography. I thought I'd spice it up by adding a knight and mermaid encounter. I prefer musketeers, so I added D'Artagnan instead. She's entreating him because in her world, mermaids are sterile and have to mate with mortals. So somewhere, the famous Dumas character has finned progeny!

Le Wow.

Beautiful colors, pre-Raphaelite level of shading and calm composition, poses more questions than it answers, thus leaving room for wondering.
