painting Mermaids

have you ever seen a mermaid? well here is 4 that i painted on small slips of sea driftwood to go in my etsy shop. Sea driftwood has a real mystery, nobody knows where it comes from iv a theory that it bobs around in the ocean for months at a time only coming in by chance if a storm forces it into land. But who knows! I feel that mermaids would be friendly so i painted them smiling, what do you think? http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart

it dont come Easy -making a heart box from driftwood

i had a couple of odd shaped pieces of sea driftwood in my stash reminded me of a heart, this got me thinking could i make a wee box in a heart shape. Thing is driftwood never is easy to work with it can be tough as leather or fragile like paper-weakened by the ocean you can never know till you start on it.Inside iv put a lucky holey hag stone and some other unusual stones collected on my travels in the area -Anyhoo im happy with how it turned out and its now in my etsy shop for sale http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart

making a box from mystery driftwood

driftwood is weird.you never know when it will wash up on the beach,nor where it came from. i like making things from it such as this small box.Why? thats another mystery. i mean you can just get new wood its easier to work with and has no marks on it. But i prefer the mystery of driftwood .Do you? i have things iv made from driftwood on my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart
