I assume this is where these liitle fellows should go! This is not meant to be entirely realistic, just a pretty picture for someone.

!2 x 8", acrylic and poster paint on MDF.

All C&C very welcome.

Ah ha! And again we meet my fair maiden!!! It is I - your stalker person :D...

I love your sea horses! Who ever you did these for is sure to love them. The one that is third from viewer left is my favorite, he seems to have a little darker contrast working around the eye area that really makes his eye show up great. These are wonderful.

Your seahorses are lovely Maryem!
What an incredible amount of detail you have put into these fellows.
I love the bubbles :)

Michael-Ann (LOL), Leaflin, thanks for looking and commenting. I really loved doing this picture, but could have wished to delegate some of the bubbles. Please note I sternly resisted adding a mermaid....

Hi Mary,
A pretty picture it is with amazing detail on those very cute seahorses. Now, if only it had more bubbles..... :evil:

MJ and Marty, thank you.

Marty, you are a sadist!!! Actually, there should have been more bubbles, and I just couldn't face it. I wonder if dipping the end of a large drinking straw in paint would work.....

Ah Mary... gotta be pleased with this!
Bet that granddaughter of yours loves it. ;)

What a wonderful fun painting. Great colors and detail. I love the bubbles too. If you want to add more, maybe try pouring in a little champagne. I'd drink to that!

Alan, Bernie, Don, thank you for your comments.

Bubbles.... perhaps if I added an Alka Seltzer (I think that's it) to the painting water...?
