"Amphitrite"! Amphitrite of course is a sea-goddess, sometime-mermaid, Nereid, and wife of the great Poseidon in Greek mythology. I love this painting, it has a great little seascape, a darling cherubic baby (the baby? Perhaps a young Rhode? Baby Triton? Depends which legends you listen to!). The baby is riding on one of the classical dolphin/dragon/fishes that I love - and of course dolphins and many other sea creatures are included in the offspring of Amphitrite. And a nautilus - perhaps it's the mystery of their perfect "golden" spiral shape, but I'm fascinated with Nautilus shells, and love to paint them. I debuted this one at Dragon*Con 2010 in a phenomenal custom frame my husband Matt made for me. The frame is 33"x22" gold leafed aspen wood (and it says "Amphitrite 2010" carved on the crest).  The painting is my original acrylic painting on a masonite panel. Prints are up at:*/prints  and will be at  shortly
