First, another mermaid tail. "Just Keep Swimming" is my own saying, and I put them on all my mermaid tail paintings.
This mermaid tail was painted using a photo from the Newport Aquarium mermaid visitors we had last year (the mermaids visit every year at the Newport Aquarium and you can get some good shots of them coming into the tank, leaving it, and swimming around. It's pretty cool if you like mermaids - which I do.
And what does Scrabble tiles have to do with this? Well, when we were in Anna Maria at a flea market, we saw vendors with loose Scrabble tiles for sale. Then saw that they glued them to the little Scrabble boards to spell out Anna Maria or AMI or Beach Days, etc. Cute idea. But it gave me another idea - one I haven't seen. Stay tuned and you'll get to see it soon. I bought a few of the tiles and I'll show you how I'm going to use them.
I had a birthday day this month and got a lot of really great presents, too. So happy to have my Sweetie, who treats me like my birthday is some kind of national holiday - only better!! And family who knows I am happiest with books and art supplies (or gift cards for the same). So another January, another New Year, another Birthday...here we go, 2019!!!
