Manatee Mermaid Monday

I am painting mermaids on my manatee whistles.  

Supposedly sailors saw manatees swimming and thought they were mermaids.  Those must have been some pretty desperate sailors.


This one is obviously in progress.  I wanted to take photos before I wax it so I can continue working without smearing or rubbing off part of the design.

 There is still a ways to go with this one.  I have two more in progress.  I'll try to remember to take photos as I work.


Alas the best laid plans......

Hares and Rabbits for August First!

As always. thanks for stopping by..............*s*

  1. Dearest Suzi,
    Indeed, there still is a lot of fantasy needed for seeing them as mermaids!
    Love yours very much.
    Hugs,
