I love the change of seasons: winter blooming into spring, summer mellowing into autumn. I can only assume that mermaids enjoy watching the seasons change as much as I do. Things are a bit different in their world, of course: golden kelp stands in for golden leaves, tiny pink anenomes make underwater blossom trees, obliging seals serve as muffs and hoods in winter. Won't you join my mermaid friends in celebrating the seasons under the sea?
Here are the character sketches I started with:

And the finals!
If you'd like to bring home some mermaids of your very own, prints are available on my Etsy shop!
