This is an original, one of a kind, watercolor painted and hand embroidered mermaid on canvas. The embroidery hoop measures approximately 14" in diameter and the outside hoop does not need to be attached to the piece to be displayed. This watercolor painting is accented with embroidery floss that sits off the canvas in a 3D fashion. It reacts beautifully in natural lighting.

Please let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!

The dimensions are great!  The water color really adds fluidity to the water and the texture of her hair looks amazing.  This might be something I have to try. What an inspiring and wonderful piece.
