"Moorish Kiss" Original 26x48 Acrylic Painting

My lovely mermaid is finally done! She is titled "Moorish Kiss" for the moorish idol hovering in front of her lips. This complicated piece has panels of wood and canvas, all attached to one back. There is even an indented section where the secretive seahorse resides. The three dimensional pieces are created with air-dry clay attached to the board. Lots of texture and metallics in this work. I had a wonderful time doing her, but I think I need to work on something small next! SOLD
