Finally completed mermaid painting after 5 years

"Tidepool" was started 5 years ago and I thought it was complete but revisited it,took it out of storage, put a clear gesso over it and worked for an additional 4 days. Since it is 36x60", which is quite large, its a much more physical experience. I have to keep stepping back to anaylize and make adjustments. Finally I feel that it is done. Hope you enjoy this. She looks as if she is somewhat surprised to be seen while lounging in the seashore tidal pools.
