8" x 10" La Sirena- Loteria Cards

I am intrigued by the game Loteria. It is similar to bingo from what I understand, but what I like the most are the images.
LoterĂ­a is a tradition that involves art, passion, and culture. The origin of LoterĂ­a can be traced back to the 15th century in Italy
Doesn't that sound wonderful?
This one is my version of the La Sirena, the Mermaid

Con los cantos de sirena, no te vayas a marear (With the siren songs, you are not going away to be annoying. From
Acrylic paint, Lumiere, rhinestones, Cernit, half pearls, parchment paper, and teardrop turquoise opal stones.


  1. it's bautiful Marie and I like the sculpted sea animals. You are very prolific my dear and your work reveals a woman who is having so much fun with life!

    I will show more as soon as I finish the drawing. darn it, it was supposed to be simple and look what I have to do, make it complicated!
