I really like this mural--the colors are fantastic, but the image is the grabbing thing about it. The fact that she is pointin upward I really like--but what I like best of all is her figure. Here is a mermaid that could be any one of us--not just one of those ridiculous sylphs from Ralph Loren fragrance commercials--and she is beautiful.

Fabulous job. Absolutely fabulous
