The Mermaid's Homesickness by WonderlandNinja The Mermaid's Homesickness by WonderlandNinja
Another dark twist on a fairy tale.
In the original story, Ariel's prince is betrothed already, and she's offered a chance to return home by killing him, but instead suicides. This focuses on her grief and shows her sewing her legs together to try to return.
Once again, HUGE RUSH JOB. Done in one day.
Oil on canvas 16"x20"

My first thought: Homesick ... it happens to the best of us.

OMGoddesses, I'm glad I'm not your parents ... It would mean I would have to send you money on a regular basis!  (As I did my own college-aged kids!)  P.S.  Good for you for making it to college.  What are you studying???

Absolutely you should NOT be offended!  Poke my eyes out if that ever happens!  I was just trying to be funny.  So sorry if it came across any other way.  Hats off to you for working so hard toward your goals.  All the best to you!Hug

Why would you rush this? You should have taken the appropriate amount of time, instead of blaming the sloppyness on your laziness.

i would also blame the fact that i am terrible with procrastination and intensely detail-oriented if given the chance, the first of which i actually really regret. i did this painting near the end of ap testing just before the portfolio was due. during the year i spent tons of my time on other pieces getting every detail right, like the pocahontas and phoenix piece, or working on larger projects extensively for college applications. i was crunching hard by the time the ap portfolio deadline was rolling around, and some ideas like this one ended up incredibly rushed. either way i am sorry because an idea like this deserved an appropriate amount of time to be painted and perfected.
