Acrylic on Canvas; The Rye Mermaid
Enticing contemporary canvas by Sophie Cassatt depicting the Rye Mermaid caught unawares in the cobbled lanes of Rye in Kent. The artist, seen in the mirror, has been lucky enough to catch the maid unawares whilst she is part mermaid and part human.
"As we all know Rye is frequented by an allusive mermaid. It is hard to spy her scaly identity, hidden beneath her earthly clothes but if you linger in the cobbled alleyways and dark casements at sunset you may be lucky enough to surprise her. Caught unawares you may hear her seaweed hair, alive with the rattle of pebbles dragging on the beach." Cassatt.
She may ask you to join her. You will never make it home.
