This is a tribute to one of those sexy 1940's vamps! Remember those vintage photos where they showcased models or aspiring models to pose with wild animals? I came across one such photo and decided to do my own version of an undersea jungle ruled by a somewhat vampy looking mistress of the deep casually posing with her 'babies'--2 magnificent mer-cheetahs (my imagination ran wild, again!) against a backdrop of thick sea kelp and lush vividly-colored ocean flora. Done completely in ink and acrylic on thick acid-free watercolor paper.
