Mermaid's Christmas Sled

Beating the Winter Blues

Holding on for dear life! 
This was a really fun painting to do.  The first thing that I did with this one was to do the background--that is, the sky, the snow, the trees, and the water.

Then I painted the horse and sled.  I had a bit of a break and then sketched the mermaid, etc. in place.  As I painted it, I decided NOT to have the mermaid standing.  Too dangerous.  
The snow looks brown here, this is NOT accurate.  The snow is white! 
This painting was shipped to Nantucket Country if you are interested in purchasing it!  It is being shipped today!

Love her!!  
Here is the final picture!  Thanks for looking at this.  I love this time of the year!  Guess what, I turned this into a Christmas Card.  I ordered them, so we shall see how they get.  If I like them, I will post a picture!

Have a great day!
