I am very much fascinated with the world of mermaids as well as that of the illusive one-horned creature; the unicorn. My inspiration, here, was ensnared while my daughter sat her mermaid Barbie upon her Swan Lake Barbie's unicorn. I thought, 'A-ha! That makes the most mystical and most lovely scenery I have ever thought of!' That night, I completed this picture with rapt joy and made a copy for my daughter to color!
