Mermaids


Today I painted mermaids. They're watercolor and ink again... quick sketches. Sometimes when I look out over Lake Superior or even some of the inland lakes, I see a wave appear. I don't know what's lurking just below the surface. The Loch Ness monster? A mermaid? The underwater world is a magical place to me. Impossible for me to inhabit. So I peer into opaque blue water and wonder. Afraid to dangle my toe for fear of what might live there. Of course this time of year the inland lakes are frozen. The ice is compromised and will soon give way once again to open water.
