Ghostship Mermaid Evolution


Nearly abandoned two years ago, it's taken countless hours of awkward and uncomfortable positioning on studio floors, Twister-like stretching and several long days with even longer nights, but a few months ago I finally finished my 4-ft x 5-ft wood panel Ghostship Mermaid mural that I first started in 2011. A triumphant victory dance later ensued. This painting (seen here) was one of my first attempts with oil and well, one of my first attempts with regard to art in any capacity. When I sat down to simply "finish wood carving the scales" it quickly evolved into a daunting yet rewarding progression of the entire piece... and I couldn't be happier with the result.
