Mermaid Memories – Magical Realism Painting

Maine Mermaid painting. Listen to your inner mermaid

The waters of the Maine coast are full of mermaid magic in my painting about reclaiming wildness and freedom of soul.  If you look closely at the two figures you can see that it’s the same woman, and the young mermaid is calling the older woman back to the sea, back to her true self.  I made all the waves stylized, but I also made the water around the mermaid inviting in a dangerous way…water that it takes some courage to dive into, but water that rewards you with renewal.  Water that is magic.  This is a recurring theme for me, a woman looking into herself and finding strength and joy.
