It was my honor to have this piece chosen for the prestigious Pasadena Art Show's "Art in the Arthouse" exhibit at the Laemmle Theater in July of 2019!

My Majestic African Merman King is the ninth painting in my Mer-Series, and my first Merman. When researching kings for this painting, I noticed that they frequently had someone carrying an umbrella for them to shield them from the sun. I loved that image and decided to have a bird carrying my king's umbrella for him. In addition, an African Hoopoe has come to rest on his tail. This large, colorful bird is said to be a symbol of a loyal friend or good visitor. Animals frequently show up in my Mer-Paintings, because I feel like they would want to know the Mer-People, just as we would like to know them! In the Yoruba Culture, this king of the ocean is known as Olokun.

24"x18", Acrylic and Fine Art Paper on 3/4" Cradled Ampersand Claybord.  Painted in 2018 in La Canada, California.
