Mermaid at the Clear Springs

This piece was done for the 2016 San Marcos, Texas, Wine & Art Walk. The theme was 'mermaids' in honor of the Mermaid Society of San Marcos. I decided to use as a reference, the wonderful mermaid from Waterhouse's 1900 painting, "A Mermaid," and superimpose it on a lovely spot near the headwaters of the San Marcos River. Have to admit that while Waterhouse's mermaid is a lovey, innocent-looking lass, my version turned out a bit naughtier and sinister looking. I swear, it wasn't intentional!
