The mysteries of the deep sea have long captured the imaginations of those who stare into the fathoms of its shimmering dark surface. There is something about falling in love with the sea’s enchantment that seduced many sailors’ imaginations and hearts.
Such hypnotic states of longing could never guarantee the fate of their outcome, but what greater true love can there be than that which appears impossible... yet prevails past all obstacles. This nautical art by Tom "Thor" Thordarson celebrates the spirit and true love of this classic hard hat diver of times long ago... steadfast and brave, like a knight of the deep.
Here, his focus is quickly changed from glistening, sunken treasure to winning the heart of this timelessly beautiful mermaid. There is so much that separates their worlds... yet this rogue of the sea lovingly offers his truest devotion. One can only hope that this fair ocean maiden can see the value of one’s heart as the ultimate treasure... more pure than gold or gem, that only comes to one but once in a lifetime.
Limited Edition Giclees by Nautical Artist Tom Thordarson
The edition is limited to only 50 canvas giclees, which are printed on certified poly-cotton canvas, using archival pigmented inks.
10 Artist Proof canvases are offered in addition to the limited edition run, where the artist adds paint to the front of the reproduction. Thor takes hand-highlighting very seriously; adding paint to truly enhance the luminosity†of the print using translucent glazes an opaque paints to the shadows and highlights in the piece. The artist's personal touch to each Limited Edition Artist Proof makes these paintings highly collectible.
