Neptune's Daughter

The first painting I have vivid memories of doing was in reception class at school. It was mainly blue and green and it was of a mermaid sitting on a rock surrounded by the ocean. The reason I remember it so well is probably because my teacher sent me to the headmistress with it, who promptly put it up in the hallway for everyone to see.

I was only four at the time but understood that this was an honour, although I was quite disappointed that I couldn't take it home to show my mum as I usually did with the things we made in class. Anyway, many years later and I'm still entranced by the sea so here's another mermaid. She's currently available in my Etsy shop.
