My little cousin Anna, as a mermaid or a naiad or something.... something just crawled forth from the ocean, and thinking about going back. I know I am too!

Sometimes I like to paint something more than once, to figure out what composition looks better. And sometimes that just leaves me wanting to paint it a few more times!

Unearthly Child

8"x16"

I should rework paintings more often- the strangest, most interesting things happen. Like this, for instance. She's like a tiny patron saint for the zombie movement.
