    A mermaid's song is a lonely one...
    but is this sea loving beauty actually a mermaid? I'll leave up to you..

    This piece features a hand-embroidered illustration of a beauty emerging from a stitched ocean on white linen/cotton mix. The sea is stitched with shades of blue,purples and pinks.

    The text is also hand embroidered in metallic gold thread.Some details have been enhanced with coloured pencil touches.

      She's beautiful :-). I love the texture in her hair, and the tinting on her face is especially nice.
