CAGED - Illustration Friday

Here's my offering for this week's Illustration Friday topic, CAGED. Not your immediate idea or concept of the word caged, but having looked up various dictionary definitions the one that appealed most to me was; Caged - anything that confines or imprisons.
To this mermaid the sea is her home but also her prisoner, she is unable to visit the land of the men that she spies from the briney foam or her solitary rock. It makes her sad as she yearns to see where the sailors call home. Well that's my idea anyway!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
Bysie bye! Jen

  3. She looks lovely on her solitary rock! Nice background patterns.
