"Damselfish Dance" - custom framed digital print

This is an open-edition 7x10 inch digital print on Epson Glossy Professional Photo paper. I've dry-mounted the print onto acid-free matboard and custom framed it with an 11x14 inch acid-free double mat, Tru-Vue conservation clear glass and a 1 inch wide teal burlwood frame. It is signed and titled on the lower matboard. A floreat hanger is included, so you can easily display your mermaid wherever a touch of the ocean is needed in your home.

"Damselfish Dance" continues a series of mermaid paintings I began in 2002. I've always loved the complex mythology of mermaids... representing the allure of a dangerous and beautiful ocean. As a teenager, I had a wonderful experience volunteering at the Seattle Aquarium, spending many mornings in the quiet of their fantastic underwater dome contemplating what it would be like to live freely below the surface. My mermaid paintings have allowed me to explore some of those thoughts. Bellydance is one of my favorite dance disciplines, and this mermaid is modeled from a bellydance performer executing a dramatic backbend. She moves among the swirling clouds of jewel-colored reef fish, in counterpoint to the school's sweeping turns. These damselfish have become her living dancers' "veil".

The original work was completed in watercolor, featuring Daniel Smith's lovely duochrome metallics, and measures 12x16 inches.
