    Gary – On a recent trip to Mexico, my husband and I stopped by Art Planet in Playa del Carmen. I was captivated by your work, and bought the print \"Mermaid\". I found it fascinating, and plan to have it mounted/framed in the next couple of weeks. What truly fascinates me is how the image looks, and I\'d love to hear more about how you captured the image, and how you changed it to make it what is now. It appears to be several images over top of one another, but maybe not. I adore it, and find it quite tranquil. Please share the story with us.

      Hello Sonja, thanks so much for your purchase and interest in the image “Mermaid”!
      I am primarily a photographer but for some time now I’ve been playing with the idea of “painting” with images. I’ve gotten such a great response to this and hope to create many more.
      The image is a composite of 3 separate photographs. The B&W image of the girl, a color underwater scene with the fish and coral, and a blue sky with the birds. The girl image was taken at a ranch in Lockhart, Texas on InfraRed film. More on infrared here: http://garydphotography.com/?page_id=904 The underwater scene is at Chankanab in Cozumel. The birds were on the coast in Port Aransas,Texas. All images were taken by me. I use no stock photography in any of my composites.
      The final image was “painted” together here in Mexico with only parts from those 3 images. Nothing was created anew. The image is actually called “Sirena”(which is Mermaid in spanish).
      I agree, it is quite tranquil. I like to think that she is dreaming about these things you see in the image.
