Mermaid Gloria - Sea Maiden 33

Mermaid art and story by Robert Kline

This is a retired mermaid print that is currently AVAILIBLE in the 8" x 10" size (entire matted size) only.

This wonderful Sea Maiden print and story are from a collection of Sea Maidens (mermaids), Sea Babies (mermaid babies), Sea Masters (merman), pirateslighthouses and fairies created by renowned artist and novelist Robert Kline of St. Augustine, Florida.  The print is a lithograph reproduction of Robert's original watercolor and pencil painting. Hand labeled and signed by Robert in pencil, all the prints come with a 1/4" foam backing and the 5" x 7", 8" x 10", 11" x 14" are matted so all you need is a frame and they are ready to hang on your wall! Each print also comes with an excerpt from Robert’s novel The Forgotten Voyage of H.M.S. Baci. A fantastic saga in which multiple generations of the Roberts’ family explore the seven seas in search of the world’s mermaid and merman population. Thus, you receive the passage from Robert's novel describing the particular event in which the character(s) in the print were sighted:

Sir Edmund Roberts, explorer and Sea Maiden quester continued his search, sailing to Pitcairn Island. One evening Captain Constance Daphne Fitzwillie startled the naturalist with a question. “May I tell you something in strictest confidence?” she asked. Sir Edmund laughed quietly. “And with whom do you fear I would share your secret? Our good friend Dan?”

Not ten feet away and secreted in the reefed sail on the spanker boom above them, Gnarly Dan frowned with wounded feelings.

The captain continued, “These many months since my husband’s departure I have reframed from violating the sanctity of his personal possessions, save his old uniforms. Only recently have I looked into his journal and official papers and what I found was rather a shock.” Sir Edmund could not imagine what could possibly have been written that would discommode Constance Daphne. She told him. “The little worm researched and verified a captain’s legal right to initiate divorce action while both parties are at sea. Further, the scoundrel had the audacity to add his signature. With a flourish!”

“The cad,” Sir Edmund answered because he felt a response was expected, when in fact his mind was racing forward with other possibilities. “And so,…” he began. “They are wanting only my signature,” the captain added expectantly.

A long silence ensued. Time dragged. The sun came from behind a cloud. “Sign them!” the naturalist exclaimed sat last with unfeigned excitement.

Constance Daphne looked into the naturalist eyes, seeking the depth of his distinct scientific soul. Apparently satisfied, she smiled and whispered, “I already did.”

It was without a doubt the finest news the naturalist had received since his nomination for the British Society of Very Honored Naturalist (he was subsequently drummed from it’s ranks for his paper on fairies and goblins).

They both felt a tremendous pull as their bodies ached and their minds raced. Sir Edmund asked the unimaginable. “Do you believe you now have the sufficient authority to perform a marriage?” It was out. It was said. There could be no retraction and no doubt as to the true implications of his query. A warm wind came over the Baci’s starboard quarter and caressed them. The good ship Baci heeled over an addition strake. “I do,” the beautiful captain whispered. It was answered. They both smiled.

They raised land the next day and Sir Edmund immediately descended in Halley’s patented diving apparatus. A Sea Maiden swam beneath, her dark hair trailing, her broad tail making long, powerful thrusts. Then as quickly as she appeared, she was gone.

“I say she was in a bit of a rush; a Sea Master in pursuit?” Sir Edmund quipped. Gnarly Dan ignored humor. “We’s dicussin’ under sea folks, yer honor, not us. Likely they’s a Sea Master all lonely-like nearby. Ya see, if she ain’t inna mood there ain’t no Sea Master what’d be so bold as ta chase her. He waits. When she gives the nod, why that’ll be different. Ever’ problem I ever had with a woman was ‘cause I shoulda waited a might longer. We could learn from watchin’ yer Sea Master.
