LifeBook 2012 Nov - Celebrating Successes

This week's lesson was about painting a stylized mermaid. It was suppose to be swimming upward to represent swimming up toward success. Sounds a little fishy to me, but whatever. Here's my finished painting. Yep, it's a little weird, but at least it's a real painting. I tried to make the mermaid long and willowy looking like the seaweed. Oh. Since the idea was to celebrate our own personal success, I had to paint a merman instead of a mermaid. You can't really tell the difference anyway. I need to practice painting mermaids!


  1. Well i couldn't do half as good Bill, so there! I think you've done a fabulous job! xx

  2. Oh Bill! Your merman is splashtastic! What will his name be?
    I wish this was hanging in my bathroom with my other mermaids!

  3. You have to be proud of this painting Bill!
    Your merman is moving and moving (en mouvement et émouvant).
    I love the BG too!
    Bravo for your real and palpable artwork! :)

  4. I like the idea of a Merman (not Ethel) and also having him resemble seaweed. I love the way your mind works.
