Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

So here is something brand new, I've included a few photos as she looks different as the light shines on her, and the varnish can catch the light which makes it difficult to catch a good photo. I hope I have included enough.
The school summer holidays are always a tough time to get into the studio and I go a bit stir crazy if I can't paint, so it was quite a relief to paint her.

Siren of Relief is painted in oil paint and varnish washes- hence the sheen. 'She' (I often refer to my pieces as if they were real people who exist in my world, maybe in some other universe they do, maybe I am a creator of realities) is reflection of dreams, of fantasies, and a depiction of reality. Mermaids have filled my dreams in recent times.
Does it resonate with your reality, your dreams? 
This piece is the beginning of a new journey with my art. Where I allow the work to flow, to manifest from my hand to the canvas, where I create truly authentic art which speaks of my story. My journey. Relief. Sustenance. Vulnerability.

I you would like more information, more images, or even a video then please don't hesitate to send me a message.

This is signed on the back, but can be signed on the front at your request.
This piece - and all originals, will come to you with a hand written wax sealed parchment of authenticity.
