Good morning my artsy friends! I was inspired to take a trip to the ocean this last week to go in search of mermaids. I know there are mermaids by the Oregon coast and I just needed a little sign to spur on my creativity for this week's SOC journal page.
As I began my journey in Bandon, I was lucky enough to meet a talking Raven. She pointed me in the direction of a mermaid beach after sharing her enchanted adventures with me.
So off I went...
Right away I spotted the place where a mermaid would come ashore to visit her lover that waited in the moonlight...
Enchanted, I walked on...
As I searched along the tide line for mermaid baubles I heard a musical tinkling laugh coming from behind. As I whirled around I heard a splash and there amongst the pebbles and shell bits was a giant heart inscribed in the sand. Oh, Raven was so right about a mermaid being here! I think that she must have flown down and whispered in her ear that I was coming!
One last gaze out to sea as the pelicans flew by and it was time to go.
I can't wait to return again for more clues and inspiration for my mermaid paintings and journal spreads!
So keep those eyes wide open while you pick the paint off your nail polish, you just might see evidence of an enchanted creature too!
Forever in art,
