A SAD MERMAID TALE...

This painting is a take off from my "Swimming in The Gulf" painting that I based on the oil spill and our reaction to the destruction of sea life. Again I am reacting. The baby dolphin have been dieing in record numbers and I adore dolphins so am saddened by this ending of the purest of sea life in the gulf. The scientists suspect that while the mother dolphins where pregnant they swam through the oils and it hurt the fetuses. So now the new born baby dolphins are dieing off and beaching themselves onshore to let the humans know what we have done. Hence my sad but true mermaid tale. She is crying because her favorite babies are not surviving. I added loads of texture and bright colors as there's hope still for the future if we will just take better care of our planet earth.
