Maidmers on the Beach

Artwork details: gouache, 21 x 9.5 inches (53 x 24 cm), 2007.

Another development of the Maidmers, following the much smaller picture Two Mermaids and a Maidmer. This time the Maidmers are a little more 'natural' - no stockings and shoes, but to match their cousins, they have - er - green pubic hair...

Maidmers and Mermaids by Nancy Farmer
Maidmers on the Beach

The Maidmers have emerged nervously from the water, unsure as to whether that is where they really belong, meanwhile the real Mermaids look on in astonishment, horror, and not a little envy. Another Maidmers picture I did was 'Sirens on the Rocks', this time showing a trio of more brashly confident Maidmers, strutting their stuff and giving the beautiful sirens a run for their money - click the thumbnail to the left to see that one.
