I decided to paint an African American Mermaid for my etsy site. I sketched her out while my ten month old slept but have been too tired at night to paint. So yesterday I decided to paint with her awake. She will explore my studio space, pick up toy trains and cars that were her brothers, chase our kitty, and then wants to be held. So here we are painting together. She seemed to be please with my mermaid as am I.
