I believe in mermaids. You can find tales about intelligent inhabitants of the underwater kingdom in almost every region. What if mermaids exist? I hope one day I’ll be lucky enough to meet them.
I like stories about the good fairies of the sea. They are full of sensuality and love and create beauty and harmony around them. This painting was given the second title “Valentine’s Day”. Thanks to the charms of mermaids, everyone finds his soul mate.
I always paint from life being situated underwater. So, the role of a mermaid was played by my partner and video operator. He wasn’t blue, of course, and he didn’t have a tail, but he was a good model for the elusive, translucent silhouettes.
