i don't know why i have always been so fascinated with mermaids.

maybe it's because i wish i was more aquatically inclined...

anyway, i've been recently thinking some more about Ondine, and its clever juxtaposition of fairy tale and very real life issues.  it's one of those movies, i feel, that you keep going back to and thinking about.  or maybe it's just me.

And of course on the purely fantastical side, there is always that lovely mermaid painting by John William Waterhouse.

maybe i'll put a mermaid in my sketchbook...
