Great work -in the imagination and creative arena! Wonder what it means? Perhaps the Mermaid is looking toward a water source of her sea life home, the rivers of land and home of humans and her lesser half. Or human origin from fish where she exists in the middle?

Artist Reply: Hi Vincent, thank you for your marvelous comment! In fact this painting comes from a time (long ago) that I was on a fantasy site (Elfwood) and we had to add fantasy figures always to get our work submitted to our gallery. So I wanted to paint this waterscape, because I liked it so much, and I added the mermaid to make it fantasy.:) At that time we had a fun conversation how on earth she had gotten there on that high rocks? One of the commentors even offered to carry her down.LOL

Stunning, so Nordic bright and clear so very beautiful ! Stunning composition the mermaid make this work rock !

Artist Reply: I'm glad you call this Nordic, on an other art site people wondered if this was truly Sweden, but they also wondered how the mermaid had come on the high rocks, haha would it be a trout maybe? Great you like it, my friend! Thanks for your always beautiful comments!

Interesting fish...She might be the catch of the day. LOL. Nice work!

Artist Reply: It might be quite difficult to catch this one, she jumps off the rocks easily into the cool water! :))

Beautiful composition,Anneke. Last time I was in Sweden 6 years ago.I like the nature of this country.

Nick Alexejev 12 Jan 2007

Fascinating work. I like the atmosphere and composition. Very calm and positive picture. Yeah, Tom and Susan are right: the depth has been shown ramarkably. It could be a postcard with "Welcome to Sweden" on reverse side.

Cristina Marsi 17 Dec 2006

Great work :) Are you sure it is Sweden? It reminds me of Iceland :)

Artist Reply: In my Elfwood gallery, there has been a whole discussion about that, Cristina. The reference was a small photo in the newspaper and there was said it was Sweden. Mirar thought it was Sweden or Norway and he lives in Sweden, so I go for Sweden. :)

Ginger Lovellette 16 Dec 2006

I can hear the water. Wonderful, Anneke.

Artist Reply: The sound of the water will be a wonderful song to her, I guess. Thanks Ginger.
