A blog about my thoughts and my love of artwork as it develops. It reflects some of the basic steps that I go through to achieve the artwork which is eventually presented to Spicher and Co, an innovative design firm that manufactures artwork for the trade. The why, what, how, and where are a few of the questions that I attempt to answer as I blog away! This is a tiny window into the life of a painter, and my hope is that my love for life shines through in the objects that I work to create.

Kolene Spicher Angel Mermaid
She Finally Got her Wings!
Original Acrylic Painting on Paper
Title in lower right corner.
When it comes time to name these mermaids, I just seem to get an idea while painting them and I seldom get 'stuck'. I don't start the painting with any solid direction. I just know that I want to paint something MERMAID, and the title just comes to me. I thought this was sort of funny and very "It's a wonderful life" like.
I am running out of places to place these paintings (as far as taking photographs) I want the viewer to imagine the painting in their own environment. I just love how the colors look with the seashells. I love being able to just paint, too, with no solid direction.
I like the crown.
My signature ship is in the background like so many of my mermaid paintings.
I think her etherial looking face is so pretty.
I also enjoyed painting the ocean with the suggestion of deep waves. The color is a cold blue and it is a wonderful contrast to her warm tail and top color.
Thanks for looking!
This painting will be added to my Doylestown Show inventory in September. If you are interested in this show, please message me thru Facebook for complimentary tickets.
