Hello Sailor

Been thinking about mermaid sex lately, as it relates to a collaborative art project I’ve recently joined. This week’s theme is “Pregnant Mermaid.” Not surprisingly, “How do mermaids get pregnant?” is a question that has been asked on the internet, and often given the unimaginative answer, “Duh. Mermaids aren’t real.” Still, hypothetically, how would it happen? Well, according to legend, when a mermaid dries off, her fishtail transforms into legs. So that got me thinking. There aren’t any mermen (at least in my version of the legend) so when a mermaid wants to get pregnant, she emerges from the sea and waits for a male passerby. So here she is, my little mermaid just at the moment of transformation. I call this painting, “Hello Sailor.”
