Every few months I get a box of stuff returned to me of things that had a chance to sell, but for whatever reason didn’t fly out the gallery.
The right turtle lover didn’t see my interpretation of the “porthole” view of some cute clip art turtles that they just couldn’t live without! LOL
The “porthole” was one of the round wood frames that I got at a rummage sale last year and added “rivets” ( brass brads) to simulate a porthole.
It was fun to come up with a different finish for each of the four portholes!
I have a coffee table book of vintage faces and thought this image would make a perfect shy mermaid afraid to peer into the porthole.
Of course she needed a crown! It was easy to cut up some window screen and decorate with shells, moss, lichen (that I found on my walk the other day) plus the last of a pearl necklace from a garage sale.
This sweet “porthole” makeover has returned to Seaside Sunrose Gallery for another chance to sell. Cross my fingers!
