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"

Hello,

I seen this and didn't realize it was an actual painting. This touch me in a different way. I used to weigh 550 lbs and lost 330. I've had some plastic surgery and in October I'm getting ready to get my legs done. I reposted this on IG because sometimes I feel like you wish for one life and when you get it you lose a part of your old life and wish you could change it back. Thank you for this beautiful painting. I would be honored to have it tatted on me

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