For Illustration Friday - "Legendary".

Being a Pisces (tomorrow, the 14th, is my birthday ;)) with the customary vivid imagination and a long time lover of water and all its fantasy elements, like mermaids, this was a truly inspiring topic for me.

Updated:
I took a better picture of this painting in daylight, since the flash played havoc with some of the glittery details. Well it still does, but to a lesser extent. ;) Hey, taking a picture of your painting is like trying to create a new creation all over together again! *sigh*
