Here is my first post on my brand new Blog! I recently began the mermaid manatee painting, and I love it so far. Although you can not see the sparkles very well, the painting is full of them. There are long strokes of glittering color throughout the piece. The painting is 5.6" x 8.75". I am not yet finished with painting it, but I'm nearly there, so it is a WIP (work in progress).
