Painted Cray Mermaid

DESCRIPTION: cephlapodic coloured kaleidoscope as an oversized ocean sized chiffon scarf
L 250 x W 145mm,
Art work derived from the visual diary of a fisherwoman long at sea.
Whose mind did twist and turn from tidal change and moon phases.
From blood spilt across the deck of hard work
From cabin fever, sea lust and dusky desire.
Painted cray mermaid modestly giving side eye – framed with net, sea creatures and school of eye fish.
Cephalopod sincerity flashing deep deliberating colour and luring light.
made with love for my selkie people.
SPECIAL CARE INSTUCTIONS:
Hand wash in fresh cold water while singing to the sirens; dry in the shade - best on the deck of a wooden ship under sail
