I took this photo while attending the opening of “Mythical Creatures” at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The artists who helped promote the exhibit by painting either dragon heads, unicorn heads or mermaids were invited to this special opening. I love it when we artists get perks.
While walking through the exhibit taking photos this particular image really struck me. There’s that siren whispering in my ear again. What I like about this perspective is how it shows two visions of mermaids and they have very little in common. One is two dimensional and very graphic, while the other appears to be carved from wood, yet appears alive and maybe even soft to the touch. Being a multi-media artist myself this was a good capture.
