Before and After Changing the Mermaid's Wave painting.

 I have started on a new blog to showcase art and art ideas.  I just got started last week and have been working on ideas to keep it interesting.  I have a great before and after shot of my Mermaid's Wave painting and I tell how I changed and improved my painting.http://akemanartist.blogspot.com/www.etsy.com/shop/akemanartist...more
