Your blog is so beautiful! I love the carved plaster mermaid - she is wonderful.I love that technique and can't wait to do more. Visiting your blog is like engaging in meditation...I'll be back!!



Oh, Rebecca, this is already extraordinary.

So very cool ... I think you have arrived!


Rebecca!! Who is this incredibly beautiful golden-haired maiden, bedecked with pearls, aloft a silvery blue wave with only a sweet fish and the crescent moon and stars for company? She who is queen of the sea, so exquisitely drawn and painted. What a masterpiece. I cannot help myself here:
(Excerpt from The Mermaid Poem by Tennyson)
I would be a mermaid fair;
I would sing to myself the whole of the day;
With a comb of pearl I would comb my hair;
And still as I comb’d I would sing and say,
“Who is it loves me? who loves not me?”
I would comb my hair till my ringlets would fall,
Low adown, low adown,
From under my starry sea-bud crown
Low adown and around,
And I should look like a fountain of gold
Springing alone
With a shrill inner sound,
Over the throne
In the midst of the hall;
Till that great sea-snake under the sea
From his coiled sleeps in the central deeps
Would slowly trail himself sevenfold
Round the hall where I sate, and look in at the gate
With his large calm eyes for the love of me.
And all the mermen under the sea
Would feel their immortality
Die in their hearts for the love of me.

I love the seaside. I love collecting shells in my little plastic bucket and lying down on the rocks peering into the rock pools at the little communities there.. mermaids and anemones. little crabs and sparkly sea glass... all part of my spirituality. xoxo
your art is Our Lady Queen of the Sea :)

Waves of you wash over me, making my day mysteriously beautiful, as the sirens of ocean call, so do you, pearl bedecked Rebecca.

My Poppy Pepper Pots opened yesterday, I sprinkled their contents in paper envelopes, they're waiting to wing their way over to you!

Love Sue x


YOU, dear Lady, are definitely there!
She is so beautiful! I cannot explain to you my facination with mermaids, the sea, the salt air, the sails, oaken barrels of salted biscuits et al. And I don't drink, but still get drunk from the thought of the rum swishing around in a copper vessel, the aroma in my nostrels. If you wonder if you are there yet, well I know I am!
I see these creatures in the night as I dream of a former life that I know I must have lived.
I love her. I love you.


I think it must be peacefuil in the depths. I think I'll travel with my Selkie when it's my time.


I believe you are arriving...
you are weaving a tale of beauty and longing in the depths.



Oh, my, just looking at your post and then reading the comments...what a beautiful adventure it is to come here, Rebecca. She revels in beauty and mystery! xoO


She is beautiful, mysterious and wonderful. I am so appreciative of your comments on the poppy painting. I loved doing it. Like your mermaid, love in the heart of the artist winds up on the canvas !


most gorgeous and true.


I have missed all this-I don't know where the last few days have gone! I love your mermaid-she is so beautiful!
