'Basking in Sunlight'

'This is one of the early fabric art projects I tackled.  Finding fabric for her body that had the look of being underwater was a challenge.  Her mermaid tail is made from several fabrics plus I used an shiny oraganza fabric to add some reflective qualities as well.  I got a bit carried away with her hair (but it was fun). I created the stone grotto from 3 different fabrics.  I cheated a bit on the octupus creatures (I cut them out of a octupus print fabric).

The finished piece is 24"x 36" and was framed.
