Dear Kerry! Boafamily & vmrs... thank you for commenting on this, Kerry's latest commission painting! The painting & Meriko are Beautiful!!! There is one very small touchup Meriko needs to be finished. I'll call you tomorrow! Don't worry. ? Do you think the Surfer should have a Kahuna bead necklace? Or not. Might lose it in a wave. Another tremendously Wonderful one of a kind painting! You are the Best Kerry! We will start another out of this world commission in May! chiron22--Don Kephart

The surfer looks great, very handsome and distracting enough to make her take a closer look.
She looks great now also, I really like the webbing on her hands a nice touch!

Dear Kerry! Could you do a favor for me? Could you put up my original inked drawing of Meriko like you did with the Shark maid! Letting the viewers know where the idea came from! Thank you if you do! chiron22--Don Kephart

Re: I'll surf with you! - WIP

Thank you for the kind words Don and Dianna!


This is not a real clear photo so I need to get a better one.. I just finished the edges of the panel with black paint and as soon as that dries it'll get a coat of retouch varnish. Then it'll be ready to ship!

Here are Don's drawings of Meriko that he sent me for reference.

Dear Kerry and talisman! Thank you for doing such fine work Kerry! I'll treasure this painting for many years to come! talisman...Thanks for enjoying some of my Fantasy art from the late 70's thru the mid 90's! Jr. & High School art classes only. There might be more shown later on. I am a hobby artist. I get an idea for a character with a simple story or phrase and I draw it. I'm sorry I haven't drawn since '95 but Pointalism/Stippling got too tiresome. At one point in the future I MIGHT start again, but I'll have to practice a lot! LOL! The first picture is Meriko getting ready to attempt a deep Sea dive record following the central black line in the picture. With help from her Professor/Protector from the Shimizu Institute in Japan, they had equipment enough to do the experiment safely that day! *Note...He found and saved her years ago. Her Mother was killed by a shark attack. She was less than a year old and weak from hunger! He raised her with compassion & scientific principles into a strong & bright Ward! #2 The second picture is Meriko getting lifted out of her tank in preparation of going out to Sea to do another Experiment! She yells, "Wait a minute Professor... I forgot my comb!" Well that explains this character from my brain! Take care every one, till the next commission between Kerry & I starts! chiron22--Don Kephart

BTW every body, Meriko was 1 year old when the professor found her. But she had the body of a 5 year old! Which helped her stay alive the few days without her Mother till he found her. And... Meriko now is only half her full size. About 400 lbs. and 8 feet long. She should be between 550 & 700 lbs. when fully grown, and between 12 & 14 feet long. Thought you might want to know! Sincerely, chiron22--Don Kephart

It's a stunning painting, ad the drawings that inspired it are damned good, too! You should both be very proud of yourselves.
