Sea Fairy

Sea Fairy, oil on canvas, 40 x 30 cm, 2019

The oil painting is inspired by a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. It captures a mermaid sitting on the seashore looking dreamily into the distance. She is accompanied by flying goldfish.

It is a painting about love and a broken heart, but also about hope. Every love enriches us, even the unhappy one. If we accept pain as a part of life, we become more sensitive and perceptive, and our empathy for people and nature deepens.

The picture was painted using the technique of layered oil painting on a canvas stretched on an internal wooden frame.
