Mermaid Mother and Child
I have been wanting to paint a mother and daughter painting for years, but it took my beautiful friend Angela Yender’s gorgeous story of a mermaid mother and daughter to finally awaken the inspiration.
Her story depicts so beautifully the eternal bond between mother and child, and here I have expressed that love as these two embrace one another, tails entwined, in a watery realm that is evocatively dreamlike.
It is a watercolour painting, my favourite medium which always manages to convey a sense of the ethereal. Of course, it has my love for the Art Nouveau style flowing through the details; hair and water swirl around the pair in aquas, lilacs and soft pinks and browns .
It would make a very unique and original Mother’s day gift! ~ It is available for sale as a quality archival giclee print, from my online shop: LizaPaizis.com

I’ve been delighting in one of my favoutire subjects: Mermaids.
I cannot get enough of these sensual fantastical creatures; I am sure most girls at some point in their lives believed they were a mermaid, trapped in a human body….
I’ve been using some lovely 300gsm heavyweight textured watercolour paper to make these little miniature mermaid paintings.
I am also using pen & ink, watercolours from tubes as well as Derwent watercolour pencils for highlights.
I’ve been selling them on Artfinder, a wonderful site where you can buy a diverse range of original art, sculpture and photography, from all over the world. It’s a great way to meet fellow artists, too!
I am also currently working on a study for a new romantic painting of a Mermaid and her Lover….please check back for an update with pictures for that soon ~
Thanks for stopping by….!
For some time now I’ve been creating these cute little original miniature watercolor paintings, previously outlined in this post.
Burmese Cat original miniature painting
Little Cardinal miniature painting
Using pigment colored pencils and ink pens, tube watercolor (I use Rembrandt & Van Gogh watercolors) and a combination of beautiful handmade mulberry bark paper and rough textured watercolour paper, I create them with little to no preliminary sketching – it keeps the process spontaneous!
Fairy Queen miniature painting
Each little painting measures 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches, and I put them in a little matt, perfect for gift giving! I love painting cats, flowers and owls especially, but have also done dragonflies, unicorns and fairies.
