Mermaid's Rest: a Digital Painting of a Gothic Mermaid

August 14, 2015


Mermaid's Rest

Gothic fantasy digital painting of a mermaid by Justin Gedak


She rests in her safe place by the ocean

the solitude healing

her fractured heart mending.


She daydreams of the past;

of the stories which could have been,

and the promises she should have kept.


Those times are so far away now,

and her journey forward is a lonely one.


However, this loneliness is welcomed;

there is a freedom to it she adores.


Her future is her own.


The open sea her home.




This gothic fantasy portrait of a mysterious mermaid was created with Corel Painter, Adobe Photoshop, and a Wacom tablet using a combination of photo manipulation and digital painting.
