Delta the mermaid

Fluffy gradient yarn, white tulle, and beads. I hear a gentle wave, I see ripples, twinkling in the setting sun.

How does one feel to live not on land but water? How does a mermaid feel?

With the mentioned materials, I try to capture the lightness of shimmering water. While subverting the peaceful and romantic notion of a mythical mermaid with a very relatable facial expression of boredom.

Delta is bored. So bored of flapping her mermaid tail fin in the blue ocean. What fun it would be, she thinks to herself, if I had two legs and had to walk from place to place and perhaps even experience knee pain.
