Our hostess this week is Caryl Hoobler who created this beautiful gothic arch using the theme “Mermaids” which she selected. What do you think of with this theme? Sea maidens? Sirens?
Merpeople or Merfolk? Whatever the vision may be we wish to see it here in gothic form!

A bit about our hostess:

I love the freedom of mixed media art and I love the tiny canvas of a
Gothic Arch. I tend to throw unexpected elements into my pieces, but
there is a thought process behind what items I use in a piece. I tend to
draw upon life experiences when creating and look for items that may
bring back a certain memory from any given time or place. I’ve chose
Mermaids as the theme this week as Mermaids are so magical and can live
in wildly colorful settings! I can’t wait to see where your Mermaids
