St. David's Day

Hereís a mermaid I bought from a gallery in Aberystwyth, when I was doing a training course in the bindery of the National Library of Wales. The Welsh Arts Council operates a loan scheme called Collectorplan which basically offers interest-free loans to buy pieces of contemporary art priced between £50 - £2000. This wonderful scheme allowed me to blow my very small budget of the time and buy my mermaid who was made by artist Jeff Soan whose work is beautiful and incredibly tactile and sinuous.

So, on St. Davidís Day, letís raise our glasses to the Welsh Arts Council!

Very nice piece. I like the way you've given the feel of water to the display. Gets a vote.
