Thanksgiving Mermaid's on Cape Cod

Celebrating Thanksgiving Cape Cod Style! 

****Update - See below 
Well, after a lot of shopping around antique stores, I finally found a frame that fits this painting perfectly. It really is a miracle because it was a weird size…  See below 

UPDATE - No. 2
The final piece, "Celebrating Thanksgiving Cape Cod Style" 

I sold this painting! I needed to make a small change, or rather add a small addition! The buyer wanted their baby in the picture!  Having a baby is an important event, I can understand it fully.  

Here is what I did, where the pumpkins were, I tucked the baby mermaid sitting amongst the blades of grass.  

She's barely old enough to sit, but there she is! 

If you love to sing, this painting is for you! 
I don't know what you have been taught, but when you celebrate, sometimes you just have to sing!  This painting comes off like a drama to me.  The drape and the backdrop really capture the feel of the Theater.  Can you imagine a play on broadway about Thanksgiving and the holidays where the characters are in Mermaid attire?  WOW.  I would go :)

Celebrating Cape Cod Style
The title of this painting

Boy that is one serious mermaid.  She doesn't know what to think of that pilgrim that looks like a puppet. 

Now this girl is sweet.  She's in love.  "Sure, I will take some gravy".  (now there's a baby-see above) !

The Mayflower landed on Cape Cod's National Seashore.  America really does start here.   

This gives you an idea of the scale.  
Let me know if you are interested in this painting.  I have not framed it yet.  Thanks for looking!


This frame came off an old museum piece.  I found it at an antique store!  I am amazed as it JUST FITS! 

I hope you have a very nice Thanksgiving holiday!

Thank you. I love the Cape. It's fun to paint artwork around my favorite times and areas. This was one of those paintings that I painted without first buying the frame. I was so fortunate to find something so beautiful that fit. Thanks for your comment.
