My Mermaid

I've spent several hours today working on my mermaid.  It is an adaptation of John W. Waterhouse's painting of a mermaid.( a copyrite free piece of art)  The cliffs are nearly finished with the sky and water beginning to peek through.  Suddenly it began to show some perspective.  It's always exciting for me when this happens.  You're never quite sure at which point it surprises you when you step back and look at the piece on the wall.  Wow this is the background and I'm getting excited, imagine when the mermaid enters.

I attended the most amazing rughooking workshop over the last 2 days. The teacher was Vicky Graham. If you ever get the opportunity to attend one of her workshops, take it. We hooked mixed media and fibres on our wall hangings and laughed. I love it when everyone starts out with the same background and end up with totally different pieces. I will post the result at a later date.
