Artist Keith Thomson says his inspiration for this piece came from the ancient Assyrian myth where the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. He jokes, "More recently, as depicted in this impressionistic painting, a young woman tried the same, out of boredom, but, after a few minutes, got bored with that too and instead got herself a glass of wine."

Keith Thomson

Birmingham, Alabama

Keith Thomson is a mixed-media artist whose art is packed with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90’s, a background that is reflected in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. His portfolio relishes in the escapism offered by art; each painting, though realistic in style, presents a scenario with a surreal and, at times, ironic twist. To begin a work, he sketches out his idea using an animation software. Then, he transfers the sketch onto the canvas and finally starts to layer oil paint. In addition to painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.
