Mermaid Beach Scenes by Kolene Spicher Pennsylvania Artist

Shelling, Eating, Swimming, Fishing, Watching, Strolling 

Things Mermaids Do on the Beach 
All in old Currier and Ives Frames 
I had a mess of old Currier Ives Frames and thought what can I do with these nice old frames? 

I thought to myself MERMAID SCENES! 
Each of these are about things
that one would do on the beach.  Wouldn't 
this be a fun series for your new beach


Each of these were drawn out in pencil.  They 
each contains similar colors and expressions.  

I love the fishing one.  I have never caught a fish on the beach.  This is not because I haven't tried, by the way! Ha. 


I really love the mermaid holding the flowers, too. 

Eating Watermelon on the beach is always fun! 
What do you like to eat on the beach?  Whatever it is, hold it close to your person, as the birds are always watching! 


My favorite thing to do on the beach is walking and looking for shells.  I love to use them in artwork and many times the shells in my art were found on the beach!  I seldom buy them. 

Some of my favorite colors...

I love to swim on the beach, too.  Flying kites is always fun, too.  What is your favorite activity on the beach, maybe it is sunbathing! 

If you want an invite to the Wilton Show that is coming up, let me know!  I am dong this show and have already mailed the flyers out, but I can get more! Wilton Show

Kolene Spicher Custom Teacup collection for Spicher and Co

Blue and White Teacups 
Spicher and Co 
High Point Market, 2017 

First of all, I apologize in advance for the poor photos you are about to look at.  Just imagine them not blurry, LOL. 
I wanted to post for all my wholesale customers with gift shops or for my designers that buy thru Spicher and Co. 

Each teacup is painted in shades of blue and white.  They are each different and vibrant and pretty in their own way.  

I feel that these could go in a lot of rooms, but think bedroom or maybe kitchen or living room.
I think the pictures speak for themselves.  I really enjoyed painting these and started them awhile ago.  I paint a little here and there till it's finished!  

I think a black frame would be lovely.  
Decorate your home with TEACUPS by Kolene Spicher. 
Available after October, 2017.  

Custom seascape by Pennsylvania Artist Kolene Spicher

My Heart's Always Home 
Day Dawns Beyond the Atlantic Sea! 

Sea Shells are gently applied  beneath glass.
Imagine this, you own the red house in the above picture!  Each morning you watch the tall ships go out somewhere unbeknown to you, what a sight!   Of course my artwork would be hanging in your house along the sea, too.  Stop and think about that!

The Large DioRama was created by an elderly gentleman captain from Maryland around 1880
I really enjoy creating reproductions that blend well with good antiques.  Today I present  Day Dawns Beyond the Atlantic. 

The Shells were collected by myself and found mostly along the Atlantic in New Jersey Specifically.  Finding the shells are 1/2 of the fun.  

I haven't decided if the frame needs any work, but I happen to think that it might be good just as it is! It will need modified, however, to receive the painting with the shells because the shells add a surface that is not entirely flat. The glass would be in the way.  

I spend some time over the summer at the Chesapeake bay and take a lot of photos.  I think this painting sort of reminds me of the bay area.  

I love it hanging with my mermaid seashell painting.  You can read about this at

This painting and the others presented here are part of my collection that will be shown at the Wilton Historical Society's upcoming 2017 show held the first weekend of November 3-5, 2017
