Drawing challenge: UNDERWATER LIFE/LOVE

Today at the Castle in the Eisenbach
the little mermaids are sitting at the jetty and bathes in the sun
like their ancestors: their great great Grandmother Sedna from Greenland and
their Danish-born great Grandmother Andersen 'Little Mermaid'
and all the sisters do at the beaches, cliffs and coasts all over the earth
 connected by water and times.

They talk to the enchanted swans about the pro and con 
of beeing a mermaid or a human – and that a morphing is irreversible.

„ Oh, wouldn't it be great that we have both, beeing a mermaid and a human?!“

Her voice had hardly faded away as
1...2...3... a swan brings a tidings and a sachet of a mysterious instant. 

 „Put a sprinkle of water to the sherbet powder and drink it from a shell 
and you will have both, beeing a mermaid and a human.“

So they do. 

Then they looks at their fin and




…Hey presto! as it would a numen... foam-arisen each of them gets two feet!

Lucky they bathes their feet in the Eisenbach and maybe they finds a Mermaid laughing and giggling in the deep, deep water...
